Kids Fishing Clinic 11-8-2014

Kids' Fishing Clinics are one-day educational events established by the Outreach and Education section of the Division of Marine Fisheries Management, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

One of the main goals for the Kids' Fishing Clinics is to create responsible marine resource stewards by teaching children the vulnerability of Florida's marine ecosystems. In addition, we hope to teach fundamental saltwater fishing skills and to provide kids with a positive fishing experience.

At the clinics, the children go through five mandatory skill stations: Casting, Knot Tying, Fishing Tackle, Good Angler and Touch Tank. After approximately one hour of instruction, the children will receive a free rod and reel (compliments of local sponsors while supplies last), and at most clinics, will have the opportunity to fish.

Since 1996, more than 52,000 children and 43,000 parents have participated in our Kids' Fishing Clinics. None of this would have been possible without the 10,000 volunteers who have come out to assist in educating these young anglers about fishing techniques, marine habitats, ethical angling and conservation.
