Learn 2 Fish With Us held a fishing clinic for the public at High Cliff State Park, which was located in Sherwood, Wisconsin on Saturday, July 16th. The day started out with Captain Greg presenting his Fishing Basics seminar which taught attendees the equipment and skills needed to begin fishing. Fishing Basic teaches; safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, casting, setting the hook, simple fishing presentations, knots, live and artificial bait, fish identification, aquatic invasive species, catch and release and so much more. After the seminar, each youth received a fully rigged Shakespeare fishing combo, NPAA Future Pro shirt and Shakespeare fishing educational book thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association, Future Angler Foundation and Learn 2 Fish With Us.
After the Fishing Basics seminar, families went fishing in the stocked Butterfly ponds utilizing their newly rigged fishing combo. Many fish were caught and you could hear ‘got another one’ most of the morning.
Captain Greg would like to thank all the great Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers that helped at the event!! These volunteers allow for our events to go smoothly and be safe.
