FWC looking for lady anglers this weekend

By Staff | Mar 17, 2010

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is looking for a few good ladies lady anglers, that is.

The FWC invites all women who want to learn more about saltwater fishing and have a great time to register for the “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” event in Naples on March 19-21.

The “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” program is fondly referred to as the “No-Yelling School of Fishing” and offers a full weekend of educational fishing activities for women to acquire or fine-tune their fishing skills, learn about habitat conservation and enjoy meeting other female anglers.

The FWC will help educate participants on the importance of marine conservation by showing habits that can be developed to help you make a difference, no matter where you fish. Women will learn safe hook-removal, release techniques and much more.

The program will begin Friday, March 19 at 6 p.m. with a social get-together at the Naples Harbour Yacht Club. Saturday’s events begin at 8 a.m. with classroom presentations followed by lunch and hands-on fishing skills. An optional Sunday fishing adventure is also part of the plan.
