Let’s Go Fishing – SCDNR Fishing Tackle Loaner Sites

June 19, 2023

It’s summertime and the fish are biting!

Are you ready to go fishing?

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) has created a program to help everyone have the opportunity to experience the joy of fishing in our state.

From a first-time angler to the pro out to catch the next big fish, you can now check out fishing equipment from one of several South Carolina Fishing Tackle Loaner Program Sites (FTLP).

At any official FTLP site, you can borrow a rod, reel and tackle box and experience the joy of fishing. All designated FTLP sites also have helpful hints on topics such as tying knots, rigging a line, what bait to use, and other information you need to know to be prepared for your fishing excursion.
