Women are invited to explore the finest of fishing at the next “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” seminar, March 8-9 at the Matlacha Community Center, 4577 Pine Island Road NW in Matlacha, which is near Fort Myers.
The event is 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 two-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.
Can’t make this one? Two more Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing! events are scheduled for this spring, including one in Dania Beach, April 11-13, and one in Stuart, May 16-18.
