‘Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!’ weekend offers angling fun

Women are invited to explore the finest of fishing at the next “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” seminar, hosted Nov. 9-11 at the Elks Lodge BPOE, 92600 U.S. Highway 1 in Tavernier.

Held in conjunction with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) through the Sport Fish Restoration Program, “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” is a national organization dedicated to attracting more women to sport fishing and to promoting conservation and responsible angling.

During the three-day, hands-on event, FWC educators will demonstrate ethical angler habits, such as safe hook removal, release techniques, fish venting and more. Local fishing guides will provide instruction on fishing techniques and methods.

“Being able to pick, choose and move between skill stations was terrific,” said past participant Mary Hackney of Naples. “I loved the flexibility.”

“I learned more about fishing in two days than from my dad in 20 years,” said Georgia Allen of Bonita Springs.

On the final day of the seminar, women may embark on an optional fishing adventure.
