Beginner Angler's Course

Event Description

The Beginner Angler's Course aims to introduce fishing to those interested in trying out fishing or searching for a new hobby. It will be completed within a day on the scenic Lazarus Island, one of Singapore's best kept secrets. You will learn both the basic theory and practical aspects of fishing during a weekend getaway.

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to use a fishing setup confidently and know how to handle a fish that is caught.

Pre-course Experience: 

No experience required but we do recommend that you do not have any phobia of standing near the sea.

Instructor to number of students: 


Minimum 6 students are required for the course to be conducted. Groups and individuals will be combined to form a class.
