Tackle Loaner Program

 

The Tackle Loaner Program loans fishing equipment just like a library loans books.

  1. borrow rods, reels and tackle boxes with hooks, sinkers and bobbers for up to 7 days of fishing.
  2. go to a Loaner Site near you (see list below),
  3. fill out a loanerspincastreel.jpg survey and form,
  4. go fishing.

Some locations may require a deposit. Check with each location for their specific borrowing policy.

If you're over 17, you will need a Fishing License, unless fishing in a State Park.

If you're under 18, you will need to bring an adult when you check out equipment.
