Public Invited to Family Fishing Clinics

fishing-clinic5Want to get your line in the water and reel in the big one, but you don’t feel confident with your angling skills? The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has a class for you. Family Fishing Clinics is an introductory class to fishing.

The clinics are sponsored by the DNR Aquatic Education Section and are designed to introduce the basics of fishing to the young and old or those who need a refresher to increase their future participation in the sport. Family Fishing Clinics teach skills on how to tie a fishing knot, rig a rod and reel, and casting. The best part is everyone will get to try their hand at fishing. Family Fishing Clinics are free of charge.
