Block A (9:00-11:00 M/W) or Hour 3 (4:00-4:50 M-Th)


Fishing has been one of the loveable pastimes that many people enjoy. Even Sir Robert Baden Powell was an avid fisher and claimed fishing as one of his favorite pastimes. Fish are highly specialized aquatic creatures, amazingly constructed for living in water. Fishing Merit Badge focuses not only on the pastime of fishing, but also the unique features of fish. Scouts do not need to be pros at fishing to earn the merit badge, and many might take on a new hobby after earning the badge. Fishing Merit Badge is also one of the electives for the William T. Hornaday Award.
