Is something as simple as learning how to bait your own fishing hook on your list to still accomplish? Don’t worry, you’re NOT alone on this one! 🙋‍♀️ Join Explorer Chick for a Half-Day Fishing Trip & Picnic Brunch Mini Adventure! This fun, women-only trip covers all the fishing basics, leaving you confident in your abilities to catch your own dinner. 🎣  Your friends will be calling you a hooker in no time! (Wait…) 

Learn Pond Fishing Basics for Beginners

Enjoy a short hike to our secret pond location in beautiful Anne Springs Close Greenway. Experience hands-on training and guidance during this beginner-friendly workshop. Submerge yourself in the sounds of the morning, surrounded by views of the glistening water. As the morning dew dissipates, we will cover everything from the different types of fish to the different methods used to catch them. Learn the art of tying knots, baiting hooks, casting the reel, hooking a fish, and yes—removing said fish from your hook. 💪 All equipment is provided. (However, if you have your own gear you would like to practice with, please feel free to bring it!)

Dine at the Greenway Gateway Canteen

Finish the day out as we will gather together at the Gateway Canteen for a delicious meal. You will have your choice of entrée made with the freshest ingredients from their seasonally changing menu.  Choose from a variety of fresh salads or sandwiches and more! 🥗 There are beer and wine available for purchase.
