The Fresh Water Fishing Club has over 400 members eager to go fishing and learn more about fishing in Florida. The club’s purpose is to bring together people who want to fish and to provide a venue for doing so. It is not just for those who have fished all their lives, but for any man or woman who has an interest in the sport.
Membership is restricted to Villages residents or registered guests. Dues is $5/yr, payable on the anniversary of joining.
The club is active in community events, including the Spring Outdoor Expo and the kid’s annual fishing derby which is part of the Summer Villages Intergenerational program. We meet monthly, September through May, the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at Lake Miona Recreation Center at 7:00 PM.
The club endeavors to:
- Develop and improve skills in fresh water fishing and related activities.
- Organize 8 monthly fishing outing/picnics each year.
- Be a source of information and instruction.
- Promote conservation ethics with regard to a “catch and release” of game fish where appropriate.
- To actively support state and federal legislation or regulations which serve to protect or improve our natural resources
