We believe that fishing enriches lives of hundreds of thousands of West Australians and forms an integral part of the WA lifestyle. The primary purpose of Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics is to introduce children and families to fishing; getting people off the couch and outdoors whilst promoting sustainable and safe fishing practices.
Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics are proudly funded by Healthway promoting the SunSmart message under a long-running partnership. These clinics have been running successfully for over 20 years and have been a core avenue for delivering both Recfishwest’s and SunSmart messages to the wider community.
Content delivered at Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics focuses on who Recfishwest is to the WA community, the ‘fish today for tomorrow’ message and fishing safety. The Slip, Slop, Slap, Slide and Seek SunSmart actions and the UV awareness messages for Healthway are an integral part of every session. Additional messages and on-ground delivery approaches may vary depending sponsors or event organisers supporting these clinics or the agreement in place for the event.
All around the metro area schools, clubs and community groups book 2 to 4 hour clinic sessions with us at approved locations. We also run fishing clinic tours on the mid-west and south coasts during some April and January school holidays.
Further clinic bookings also come from various club or community-run events around Western Australia which align with the Recfishwest vision and promote and share our values.
