Break in your new year’s fishing equipment!
The Arizona Game and Fish Department is holding a free fishing seminar on Saturday, Jan. 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hirsch Conservation Education Area (Biscuit Tank). The area is located in the Ben Avery Shooting Facility on 4044 W. Black Canyon Blvd. in Phoenix.
The event will allow the opportunity for you and your family to break in your new fishing tackle and equipment. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to help you set up and tune your rod and reel for a new year of fishing. Come on out even if you don’t have your own equipment. We will have loaner rods, and bait to entice the fish.
This is a “catch-and-release only” activity, and we’ll show how to safely handle the finned and whiskered fish and let them go for another day. The entire event, including the use of loaner equipment, is free of charge!
