DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- To attract more women to sport fishing, wildlife officials are hosting a ladies fishing seminar in Dania Beach.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is holding the seminars Friday through Sunday. The "Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!" event is part of a national effort to also promote conservation and responsible angling.
Wildlife educators will demonstrate ethical angler habits, such as safe hook removal, release techniques, fish venting and more. Local fishing guides will provide instruction on fishing techniques and methods.
On the final day of the seminar, women may embark on an optional fishing adventure.
