This paper develops an empirical test of the effects of learning-by-doing for one outdoor recreational activity-sport fishing. Using a household production framework learning-by-doing is modeled as the development of skills through the previous experience of the individual recreationist. A survey of opening day participants in spin and fly fishing in Pennsylvania is used to evaluate the model. The empirical results lend strong support to the underlying framework.
