Women are invited to explore the finest of fishing at the next "Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!" seminar, Nov. 11-13 at the Holiday Isle Resort and Marina in Islamorada.

"Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!" is a national organization dedicated to attracting more women to sport fishing and to promoting conservation and responsible angling. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is co-hosting the event through the Sport Fish Restoration Program.

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

"Our Islamorada seminar provides women with a unique experiential vacation getaway where they can learn, network and enjoy the fabulous Florida Keys and all of its remarkable fishing," said Betty Bauman, founder of the series. 

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