Fishing with the Kids

Course Image

Have you ever wanted to take the kids fishing but don't know where to begin? Fishing is a life-long skill that many kids and adults enjoy and continue to practice throughout their lives. This course is designed to equip you with the basic skills required to confidently take the kids fishing and catch fish!

Fishing not only teaches you how to put food on the table, but it also helps you to:
* develop a close relationship with your kids
* learn about the environment
* get outdoors as a family and away from those computers, phones and video games
* discover a hobby that is relatively inexpensive, very accessible and good for your health!

Learn to tie knots, prepare your rigs, target fish that are easy to catch, and have some tricks up your sleeve to keep the kids occupied when the fish are not biting! Time will be spent on our local waterways putting it all into practice.

Please note: This course is designed to be enjoyed by a parent and accompanying child/children. Both parent and child must be enrolled in the course.
