Fishing & Boating News
Known for its emphasis on conservation, LLGF offers weekend, immersion-based fishing universities that focus on women and novice to mid-level experienced anglers. What sets this series apart is the one-on-one skill practice, including catch and release, de-hooking, spin, net and fly casting, boat handling, trailer backing, knot tying, and more. Most weekend events include classes, hands-on skill practice, networking and optional charter fishing. The program focuses on women, their male guests and teens to include the family.
Alan Lang, Scout Boats Director of Sales & Marketing, commented, “At Scout, we create the best-built coastal fishing boats in the market today, and we recognize that market is made up of both men and women. The importance of women to the boating/fishing industries is a major factor, and one we take into consideration while crafting our models…as well as having partnerships with organizations such as ‘Ladies, Lets Go Fishing!’.” The industry needs to cultivate new anglers to grow, and women make up 33% of all anglers, as well as 45% of new anglers, according to the RBFF.”
Seven Seas Yacht Sales, located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, is a top Scout Boat dealer worldwide. Commented LLGF Founder Betty Bauman, “It’s a pleasure to work with this family-run business with women in leadership positions. This dealership recognizes the influence of women on family recreational decisions.”
