Designed for youth and families with little or no angling experience, Hook Kids on Fishing started in 2004. This program has introduced children and parents to conservation-minded fishing through a multi-station program that provides basic instruction: rod handling, tackle, casting, safety and knot tying. Since 2012, approximately 10,000 children, parents and volunteers have participated in this program. In an effort to expand our reach, and our mission, our Junior Anglers Education program reaches young adults.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation commission's mission through Fish Orlando is to create, conserve, and promote convenient quality fishing opportunities in the greater Orlando area. To accomplish our mission we practice management strategies based on applied science as well as maintaining elaborate communication with our stakeholders. Because over 90% of those fishing today got started by a family member, Fish Orlando's marketing slogan is "Bringing Quality Fishing to Families".
