The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Faver-Dykes State Park will host a hands-on, saltwater fishing workshop on November 16th to teach visitors the basic techniques for catching fish, as well as the importance of conservation and safety.
Participants of all ages will have the opportunity to learn how to identify the local saltwater fish species that are commonly caught, as well as receive training on how to use a fishing rod and reel along the bank of the Pellicer Creek. All fishing gear will be provided for each participant to use during the workshop, including a complete rod and reel set, fishing tackle and bait. Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will be awarded a certificate and a souvenir fishing packet. Snacks and beverages will be provided during the workshop.
The cost of the workshop is $10.00 per participant, including park entrance fee. This is a two-hour workshop and spaces are limited. Advance registration is required. Please contact Melissa Clauson, (386) 446-6783, or email [email protected].
