School holiday fun!
Fishing is the WA DNA! And giving kids and families access to fishing experiences is something we really value at Recfishwest.
With this year marking the 21st year of delivering fishing clinics to families all over the State, we are proud to have facilitated some awesome clinics during the school holidays recently.
From Karratha to Fremantle, to Hillarys and Kalbarri, we have been busy in the school holidays! All up we’ve had more than 100 eager young participants join us to learn about basic fishing skills, the use of appropriate equipment, the reasons behind fishing rules, correct fish handling techniques, catch care, sunsmart messages and safe fishing.
Check out just some of the clinics you’ve joined us on recently. It was great to see kids remembering to slip, slop, slap, seek and slide!
We are grateful to Healthway/SunSmart for their ongoing support, as well as Get Hooked and our passionate fishing clinic instructors who dedicate their time to help grow the program and get families out fishing!
Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics for groups across WA
Recfishwest have been able to deliver fishing clinics to children and families across WA for many years free of charge, thanks to our excellent partnership with Healthway promoting the SunSmart messages, whilst introducing kids and families to recreational fishing basics. Our clinics have become increasingly popular every year and recently we have not been able to accommodate some of the booking applications we received.
As a result we have been working on a new approach to our booking schedule and structure, to continue to provide as many fishing clinic opportunities to groups in the regional, rural and remote areas, as well as the many metro groups in WA.
As from July 1st 2019 Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics are run for all groups at $5 per participant. For up to a 2 hour session we have a minimum group size of 15 and a maximum group size of 30. All updated details are available in the FAQ tab (above) on this page.
If you have more questions and can’t find the answers in our FAQ section you can send us a message from the ‘enquire’ tab above, or feel free to contact the office directly by phone (08) 9246 3366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Even more fishing opportunities
Fishability are a not-for-profit organisation who recognise the need to ensure recreational fishing is accessible and affordable to everybody, regardless of ability, skill level or experience.
With the support of a large team of volunteers, Fishability are able to deliver both jetty and boat programs regularly in the Perth metro areas and regional centers at no cost.
