Recfishwest SunSmart Fishing Clinics
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 outdoors, promoting sustainable, safe fishing practices and connecting families to the fish they catch – making them better stewards of the marine environment.
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 more than 20 years and have been a core avenue for delivering both Recfishwest’s and SunSmart messages to the wider community.
Our SunSmart Fishing Clinics are also proudly supported by our partners Shimano, who are one of the most trusted international fishing brands with quality fishing equipment and a great reputation. Shimano are now long time partners for supporting sustainable fishing and great fishing experiences in Western Australia and are also a Supporting Partner of Recfishwest’s Smartphone App, our weekly state-wide Fishing Reports and our salmon fishing campaigns.
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.
The clinics are ran for families all over the state from Esperance to Kununurra and everywhere in between. Our experienced instructors are passionate about what they do and combine knowledge, mentoring and positive life skills with conservation and education.
