In partnership with other like-minded organizations, the Anglers for Conservation is coordinating a Fish Earth Day using the Anglers for Conservation’s Hook Kids on Fishing Program on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at Fishermen’s Village in celebration of Earth Day. Sign in begins at 9:00 a.m and clinic starts promptly at 10 am and continues until 12 Noon. Is there any better way to celebrate Earth Day 2014 than bringing families together fishing and learning about our planet Earth?

Kids ages 6 to 16, are welcome along with their parents. The first 80 kids registered may receive a free rod and reel. Registration is mandatory by calling King Fisher Fleet at (941) 639-2628.

These conservation-minded Hook Kids on Fishing programs teach casting, fishing safety, knot tying, the tackle box, catch and release tactics, fishing habitat and conservation; and is taught by professional guides and knowledgeable anglers. Parents and kids bring your smiles, positive attitudes and patience along with you! Volunteers are needed.

Parent or guardian must accompany attendees.

Additional community sponsors include the Fishermen’s Village, Rio Villa Bait & Tackle, Canoe Outpost-Peace River, Anglers For Conservation, Fish Florida Foundation, Coastal Angler Magazine, Florida Outdoor Writers Association (FOWA), Aylesworth’s Fish & Bait, and Pure Ocean Productions.

The Hook Kids on Fishing program is a product of the Anglers for Conservation (AFC), a non-profit-501-C3, whose mission is to create a new generation of marine stewards using community-based angling education, habitat restoration and applied conservation science.

We hope to see you Saturday, April 5th, 2014 as we help kids get “Hooked on Fishing”!
