WOMEN'S FISHING CLINIC
Sebastian Inlet State Park
Date: March 15, 2014, 9 - 5 PM
Learn the skills to successfully cast your line into the sea.
Participants will not only take home a lifelong hobby, they will leave with a new appreciation for the marine environment. Learn the basics of environmental stewardship, fishing ethics, angling skills, safety and the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems in a fun, laid-back learning atmosphere.
Lessons include knot tying, cast netting, getting your fishing tackle ready for use, types of life jackets and how to use them, how to be a responsible marine resource steward, fish identification and more.
If conditions allow, women will have the opportunity to practice their newly learned skills and fish from the shore. This event is a catch-and-release activity, and all participants must have a valid recreational saltwater fishing license unless exempt. Saltwater fishing licenses can be purchased at your local tackle shop or online. Learn more by visiting MyFWC.com/License.
Fishing equipment and bait will be provided during the clinic, but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear.
