YOUNGSTERS learnt how to fish for the future at school holiday fishing clinics in and around Mandurah Community Museum last week.

Information sessions were held in the museum with workshops and demonstrations on the river bank nearby.

The Fish for the Future clinics are held in partnership with RecFishWest, Mandurah Community Museum, Mandurah Offshore Fishing and Sailing Club and supported by the City of Mandurah’s Community Assistance Funding.

The clinics have been held during the school holidays for the past four years, and the number of sessions has been increased this year due to popular demand.

They included a 30-minute environmental presentation, followed by 1.5 hours of demonstrations, knot tying, fish filleting and supervised fishing off the bridge.
