Looking to get the kids off their screens and devices over the summer school holidays and outdoors doing a free, fun and educational outdoor activity?
Recfishwest’s popular SunSmart Southern Fishing Clinic Tour is making a triumphant return to eight locations along WA’s stunning southern coastline to introduce kids to the joys of fishing!
In conjunction with our partners Healthway and Shimano, Recfishwest is once again hosting our Southern Tour of SunSmart Fishing Clinics between 6-17 January along our stunning southern coastline from the Duke of Orleans caravan park all the way up to Augusta.
A total of 14 FREE fishing clinics are set to take place at eight of some of the best fishing locations on the south coast of WA, with the Duke of Orleans caravan park, Esperance, Hopetoun, Bremer Bay, Albany, Denmark, Walpole and Augusta all providing fantastic opportunities for mums, dads and their kids to wet a line and learn about fishing.
At the clinics, kids are provided loan fishing gear and shown the basics of fishing by Recfishwest’s friendly expert fishing instructors. The instructors also teach the kids about fishing for the future, caring for the environment and being SunSmart making for a super fun fishing session for the kids, as well as an educational one.
The enduring popularity of Recfishwest’s Southern Tour shows how important fishing is to the south coast lifestyle and culture as well as highlighting all the great benefits it provides.
Recfishwest Fishing Clinics Coordinator Sedin Hasanovic said, “The clinics are heaps of fun and they provide a great introduction to fishing for kids, an appreciation of estuary and marine environments along with the great benefits and enjoyment to be had from healthy outdoor activities.
“Fishing is a huge part of the south coast way of life and provides a fantastic range of mental, physical and social wellbeing benefits – these clinics provide a gateway to all of that and can help spark a love of fishing for those kids who get involved that can last a lifetime. We look forward to seeing you and your kids there!”
