A POP­U­LAR fish­ing clinic has notched 20 years in WA.

The SunS­mart part­ner­ship be­tween Rec­fish­west and Health­way pro­motes the health ben­e­fits of fish­ing and sun safety through com­mu­nity fish­ing clin­ics.

About 60 school­child­ren joined Fish­eries Min­is­ter Dave Kelly to cel­e­brate by wet­ting a line from the banks of Hinds Re­serve, Bayswa­ter, just a good cast across the river from the shores of As­cot.

“These clin­ics are an af­ford­able way to teach kids about safe fish­ing prac­tices, with rods, reels and bait pro­vided to par­tic­i­pants,” Mr Kelly said.

“We have some of the most pris­tine coastal and river en­vi­ron­ments in Aus­tralia, and it’s great to see so many West Aus­tralian fam­i­lies learn­ing how to fish in them safely and sus­tain­ably.”

Chil­dren’s fish­ing clin­ics will be held on var­i­ous days through Jan­uary at Point Wal­ter and the Mt Henry Bridge.
