Women are invited to explore the sport of fishing April 11-13 at a “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” seminar at the I.T. Parker Community Center in Dania Beach, Fla.

Sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in conjunction with the Sport Fish Restoration Program, “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” is a national organization dedicated to attracting more women to sportfishing 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 and fish venting. Local fishing guides will provide instruction about fishing techniques and methods. The community center is at 901 NE 3rd St. in Dania Beach.

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

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