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.

Winners are grinners! Smiles on youngster’s faces are always present at our SunSmart fishing clinics. Make sure you book your spot before they fill up!

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!”

Spots are limited across all 14 clinics with 35 spots available at each clinic, so mums and dads are advised to get in quick to reserve your place as these fishing clinics are very popular over the summer school holidays!
