Head 2 Head Fishing Pro Walleye Series held there very first tournament at the Detroit River the week of April 12th and Learn 2 Fish With Us was there to provide fishing clinics to the youth and families of the Detroit area. Fishing clinics were held on April 13th, 14th and 15th at Elizabeth Park from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Along with the youth many adults attended the fishing clinics as they were interested in learning to fish so they could enjoy the outdoors.
Each fishing clinic started out with Captain Greg presenting his Fishing Basics seminar, which taught attendees about the skills and equipment needed to begin fishing. They learned safety while fishing, spin cast and spinning fishing combos, different fishing presentations, how to tie a Palomar and Clinch knot, fish identification, live and artificial bait, keeping a fishing log, aquatic invasive species and conservation. After the seminar, youth attended hands on educational stations where they worked with PWS anglers to learn how to cast safely and accurately along with how to tie the different knots.
After the fishing clinic, youth were excited to learn they would received a Shakespeare fishing combo, NPAA Future Pro Shirt, My Fishing Journal educational book and Tru-Turn hooks thanks to the National Professional Anglers Association, Future Angler Foundation and Learn 2 Fish With Us.
