Participants will take home a lifelong hobby and leave with a new appreciation for the marine environment.

Lessons include knot tying, cast netting, rod and reel rigging, how to be a responsible marine resource steward, marine fish and habitat identification, catch-and-release techniques, and more.

If conditions allow, women may practice their newly learned skills by fishing from shore. This event is a catch-and-release activity.

Learn more by visiting MyFWC.com/License.

Fishing equipment and bait are provided during the clinic but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear.
