PHOENIX — Get started in the heritage-rich sport of fishing for free by bringing family and friends to the Brian Pinney Memorial Fishing Clinic from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 17.
Fishing licenses will not be required for this Arizona Game and Fish Department-hosted event located in Phoenix at the Hirsch Conservation Education Area.
Loaner equipment will be available and mentors will be on hand to assist.
The clinic is named in honor of the late Brian Pinney, an avid sportsman who was recognized as a leader in the wildlife conservation community. He was devoted to introducing families to fishing and hunting and preserving the outdoor heritage. This annual fishing clinic will honor his legacy and contributions to Arizona’s wildlife resources.
