The YMCA is pleased to be a partner with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission's Tackle Loaner Program.
First-time and novice anglers in North Carolina are encouraged to borrow rods and reels free of charge to join in the fun of fishing!
- The Tackle Loaner Program (TLP) operates like a library. Anglers of all ages register at participating locations to receive a tackle loaner ID card, which allows them to check out a rod and reel.
- The tackle is available through numerous city, county and state parks around North Carolina.
- TLP ID cards can be used at other participating sites in North Carolina, but rods and reels must be returned to the original loaner site.
- First-time participants under age 16 will receive a free mini-tackle box.
