Take Me Fishing gathered hundreds of stories from women anglers in celebration of Women’s History Month, as part of its effort to promote fishing among the fastest-growing group of anglers.

“To me, fishing is not about catching a trophy fish; it is about losing oneself in a bigger connection with the bigger world,” wrote Pamela Corwin. “It gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in a form of meditation that all true fishermen seek.”

“Fishing has brought a new appreciation of the little things into my life and has brought me even closer to the people who mean the most to me,” wrote Annastasia Tolley.

Kate Anderson wrote about how her favorite feeling is fighting a fish and the anticipation of not knowing what you’ve caught until it reaches the boat.

“Because of this love of the water and fishing, I now work in the recreational marine industry and get to go fishing, shrimping and crabbing for work!” Anderson said.

Sarah Cox says her stepdad taught her how to fish when she was 4 years old, and her and helped her daughter Reagan reel in her first fish when she was 2. She captured the moment on Facebook here:

Vlogger Alycia Page shared this video explaining her arc to becoming a self-sufficient angler, adding that there’s no better feeling of reeling in a fish knowing that you’ve put in all the hard work to land it. “I will take you fishing,” she declares to women who want to learn.
