Women are invited to explore the finest of fishing at the next “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” seminar, hosted Nov. 15-17 at the Elks Lodge BPOE, 92600 U.S. Highway 1 in Tavernier in the Florida Keys.

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 on Key Largo, 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.

“Our Keys University offers a unique vacation getaway where women can learn, network and enjoy the fabulous Florida Keys and its remarkable fishing,” said LLGF FounderBetty Bauman. “The new venue at the Elks lodge enables the series to contribute to the Keys community and enjoy a facility that is on the water with beautiful sunset views on the bayside.”

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