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

After a short hike to our secret pond location in beautiful Anne Springs Close Greenway, we will have 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!)

Picnic-Style Brunch

After a full morning perfecting our “jigging” techniques (the act of constantly moving the rod tip to a lure or bait) and getting “slammed” (getting hooked on a fish) at our secret honey hole, enjoy a catered picnic-style brunch. Being served is a breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon, and cheese, accompanied by pancakes and fruit. And of course, magical bean juice ☕ will be available, along with fruit juice.

No experience necessary for this fully-guided and equipped half-day fishing trip! Fish out of one of the finest ponds Charlotte has to offer.
