Gear, tactics, travel and more from the female angler’s perspective.
Women know the challenges of learning to fish and finding fishing buddies today, but what was it like in the 1950s, and why did three women decide to start the International Women’s Fishing Association way back then? Executive Editor Chris Woodward talks with current IWFA board members Connie O’Day and Lisa Everett about the group’s history as well as its 21st century mission.
Welcome to a page dedicated to women anglers, curated by our female executive editor, Chris Woodward. Chris grew up fishing in Florida, and has spent the last 30 years as an outdoors editor. In her experience, fishing offers more than just a tale and some bragging rights. It brings with it — particularly for women — feelings of appreciation and a deeper connection to others and to the natural world.
