Fishing & Boating News
The joint marketing relationship will enhance promotions for each partner's respectiveorganizations as well as to encourage Freedom Boat Club members to learn fishing from A-Z at the LLGF weekend seminars held in Florida.
"We're excited to partner with the most well established and the nation's most rapidly growing boating membership club," commented LLGF Founder, Betty Bauman. "This club presents the perfect solution for those who want to go boating and fishing but who don't have direct access to a boat, or who prefer the boat club model with access to 800+ boats nationwide. We believe many of our participants will find the boat club a very attractive and affordable entry to the boating and fishing lifestyle."
"We are equally pleased to sponsor the Ladies, Let's Go Fishing program as many of our members are active anglers, while others want to learn more about fishing," added Freedom Boat Club CEO and President John Giglio. "The LLGF organization does a tremendous job of instruction and since member education is one of our primary areas of focus, we believe this alliance delivers a winning partnership."
Freedom Boat Club's SW Florida clubs recently promoted the March 2015 LLGF event, which was attended by several of its club members. In its new sponsorship capacity, Freedom Boat Club will actively promote the LLGF's events, plus be on-site at various training events throughout Florida. .
LLGF offers weekend fishing universities focused on women and novice to mid-level experienced anglers. Most weekend retreats begin with a Friday networking reception, Saturday morning classes, lunch, afternoon hands-on skill practice and optional charter fishing on Sunday with fillet demonstration. The program focuses on women, their male guests and teens. Skills taught include catch and release, de-hooking, spin, net and fly casting, boat handling, trailer backing, knot tying conservation and more.
LLGF is featured in four cities for 2015 and in one international trip:
March 14-15 Ft. Myers/Matlacha
April 17-19 South Florida
May 29-31 Treasure Coast
November 13-15 Keys/Islamorada
Sept. 11-13 Bimini, Bahamas Fishing Adventure
More than 8,000 graduates have attended from 44 states, to learn and experience fishing for Florida's inshore and offshore saltwater species.
