If you haven’t already noticed, women are making huge strides in the male-dominated sport of fishing! All industries are taking notice to the ladies who fish and in a big way. They are even preparing free clinics to learn how to do the basics in fishing ethics.
At MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach, Florida events are held around a theme and on May 16, 2015 they are holding a free, day long fishing clinic for lady anglers to learn the fishing basics from 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. and you will take home a lifelong hobby and hopefully leave the clinic with a whole new appreciation for our marine environment. The female participants will learn the basics of fishing principles, angling skills, safety and environmental marine ecosystems in a super fun and laid back atmosphere. Lessons include cast netting, rod and reel rigging, knot tying, catch and release techniques and fish identification.
After all, be sure to bring your fishing pole as women have time to practice their new skills and remember all participants must purchase a valid recreational saltwater fishing license. Fishing equipment and bait are provided during the clinic but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear.
Learn the skills to successfully cast your line into the sea by attending the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Fishing Clinic for Woman!
