Get your wife or girlfriend hooked so you both can enjoy time on the water! Next week the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is having a special Women's specific fishing clinic. Lear the basics, fishing ethics, angling skills, safety and more.

Learn the skills to successfully cast your line into the sea by attending the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Women’s Fishing Clinic in Fort Pierce on Friday, March 14, or in Vero Beach on Saturday, March 15.

Participants will not only take home a lifelong hobby, they will leave with a new appreciation for the marine environment. They will learn the basics of environmental stewardship, fishing ethics, angling skills, safety and the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems in a fun, laid-back atmosphere.

The free, day-long clinics are from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Fort Pierce event will be at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park, 905 Shorewinds Drive. The Vero Beach event will be at Sebastian Inlet State Park, 1425 Florida A1A.

Advance registration is required, and the event is capped at 20 participants.

Lessons include knot tying, cast netting, rod and reel rigging, boating safety, how to be a responsible marine resource steward, marine fish and habitat identification, catch-and-release techniques and more.

If conditions allow, women will have the opportunity to practice their newly learned skills by fishing from the shore. This event is a catch-and-release activity. All participants must have a valid recreational saltwater fishing license unless exempt. Saltwater fishing licenses can be purchased at your local tackle shop or online. Learn more by visiting MyFWC.com/License.

Fishing equipment and bait will be provided during the clinics, but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear.
