Florida Kids Fishing Clinics 2013

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be sponsoring Kids’ Fishing Clinics throughout Florid once again in 2013. These one-day educational events designed to teach children about the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems and help them become responsible marine resource stewards.

The children go through five mandatory skill stations: Casting, Knot Tying, Fishing Tackle, Good Angler and Touch Tank, that are designed to give each child fundamental saltwater fishing skills and to provide them with a positive fishing experience. The clinic lasts about one hour and each child will receive a free rod and reel for participating. Most clinics will also give the children an opportunity to test there new fishing skills.

Here are the dates and places for Florida’s 2013 Kids Fishing Clinics.
