FreeFishing day is a day when you can fish without a license. This is a day which can be an excellent outing as well. Free fishing days provide a great opportunity to parents and guardians who don't have licenses, to take their children for fishing. Even expert anglers can take a friend along and introduce him or her to the joys of fishing. On Free Fishing day the requirement of a Fishing Licence is obviated for all recreational anglers.

Each state has its own free fishing days. It is up to the residents to be aware as to which are the free fishing days in the state and make plans accordingly.

Free fishing days occur once or twice in a calendar year and it is for parents to plan for this day before hand. It can be made into a memorable event for all especially the younger lot with a proper thought out plan for the entire day.

Before embarking on a free fishing day expedition a man or head of the family must arrange for all the fishing equipment. Arrangements for a fishing tackle, cord, line, hook and bait must be maid well before. All these need to be carefully packed. In case a family boat is available it is best to take it along.

The children must be taught the nuances of fishing and angling. In case a child is a non swimmer, arrangements for a life jacket must be made and the child made to wear one when venturing on a boat in a lake or pond.

Never venture into swift flowing streams in a boat. In that case restrict the fishing and angling for fish from the bank or a ledge. Make sure the ledge or rock is firm and will not give way with the weight of the child and plunge him or her into the rivulet.

As the fishing trip will involve being out for the entire day, sufficient quantity of food and beverages must be carried along. For adults a bottle or two of beer will make the day more exciting.

Many states offer a number of facilities especially for children on free fishing day. It a good idea to be abreast of what all facilities is available. Free Fishing day is great fun for kids. They will need tutoring as to how to fling the bait in the water and how to pull the fish up once it has bitten the bait and is hooked.

Free fishing day is a fun day for the family and kids and its best to make the most of it. In case there is a heavy down pour, its best to forget about venturing out as Free Fishing day is best enjoyed in clear fine weather.

When going for fishing on free fishing day, make it a point to carry a first aid kit. It will be handy in case a child gets a nick or a cut.
