CAI Training | October 20

Gain the tools necessary to design, develop, and provide leadership to BSA fishing programs offered to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers at a unit, district and council level.


The Greater St. Louis Area Certified Angling Instructors (CAI) are a group of dedicated volunteers that assist the council’s fishing program by providing quality angling instruction and event coordination for the local Scouting community. The CAI’s are trained merit badge counselors for fishing, fly fishing, and fish and wildlife management.

If your troop or pack is interested in having a CAI lead a fishing program or assist with a fishing event, contact Tad Biggs, Greater St. Louis Area Council Fishing Committee Chair, at

CAIs can also help coordinate fishing outings by reserving local Missouri Conservation education lakes and providing fishing equipment and angling instruction. MDC guidelines, date, and weather condition limitations apply for these sites.
