The Library, in collaboration with the New York State Department of Conservation, loans fishing poles. The poles can be checked out for 7 days with your Library card. If over the age of 16 make sure to have a fishing license.
For more information on fishing, statewide regulations, and more, check out the NYS DEC's fishing website.
Check out this website on how to make a palomar knot, the knot used to tie a hook onto a line for fishing.
