that is. The FWC invites all women who want to learn more about
saltwater fishing and meet other lady anglers to register for the
"Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!" event in Naples on March 11-12.
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 them make a difference, no matter where they
fish. Women will learn safe hook-removal, release techniques and
The program will begin Friday, March 11, at 6 p.m.
with a welcome reception at the Naples Harbour Yacht Club.
Saturday's events begin at 8 a.m. with classroom presentations,
followed by lunch and hands-on practice with various fishing
skills. An optional Sunday fishing adventure is also offered.
