Women are invited to explore the finest of fishing at the next “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” seminar, hosted April 11-13 at the I.T. Parker Community Center, 901 NE 3rd St. in Dania Beach.

Sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) in conjunction with the Sport Fish Restoration Program, “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” is a national organization dedicated to attracting more women to sport fishing and promoting conservation and responsible angling.

During the three-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.

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

Other upcoming Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing! events are scheduled for May 16-18 in Stuart and Nov. 14-16 in the Florida Keys.
