Kids Can be Fish Wise at this Free Session in Bald Hills

Did you know that a free fishing lesson is set to take place at the Bald Hills boat ramp this school holidays? Fish Wise is open for kids between 10 to 17 years old, who will be taught the basics of fishing by 2 Bent Rods.

Samantha and Jeremy Beckmann, the award-winning team behind 2 Bent Rods, has been operating since 2004. Aside from teaching fun fundamentals of fishing, the pair also imparts safe and responsible fishing practices as a life skill for kids. 

Fishing allows kids to unplug from technology and gain the benefits of spending time with nature. Learning the skill develops their confidence and brings a positive feeling of empowerment. The memories of that first catch will always be very special.

The activity is also a fantastic teachable moment in understanding marine life and the food chain, as well as gaining insights into conservation and fishing regulations.
