Broome’s first-ever women’s fishing workshop a major success

 

The Broome Fishing Club’s first-ever women’s fishing workshop was held last month and was a great success.

As part of its recent push to get more women into fishing the club hosted 67 lady anglers, who have all been very complimentary about the afternoon.

To make it even better, many of them took advantage of good weather on the following day to get out and try their newly-learned skills, with great results which led to a number of selfies on social media.

The workshop itself was broken into three sections, with the Department of Fisheries giving a talk on fish identification and bag limits.

The ladies were then broken into seven groups for knot tying demonstrations, with an instructor for each group.

The workshop concluded with a talk on the all-important topic of safety.  Family members then joined ladies for a meal of Mexican to round out a fun day.  Rounding out the community feel of the event, the local Men’s Shed also helped with the day, providing bus transport to the Broome Fishing Club from town.

If you are a keen female fisho and want to get involved and keep updated on what the group is doing, join the Broome Girls Gone Fishing Facebook page.
