Spaces available for upcoming Family Fishing Clinics

Family Fishing Clinics is an introductory class to fishing and now even more dates have been added around the state. It's a chance to learn everything from tying a proper knot to casting techniques.

The clinics are sponsored by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources Aquatic Education Section and are designed to introduce the basics of fishing to the young and old or those who need a refresher to the basics of fishing to increase their future participation in the sport. Family Fishing Clinics will teach skills on how to tie fishing knots, how to rig a rod and reel, casting and the best part is everyone will get to try their hand at fishing. Participants will learn how and where to fish and have someone to fish with to become confident anglers. Family Fishing Clinics are free of charge.
