Women and Diversity

Calling all Ladies!!!

We have a group just for you!!!

“Women’s Outreach” for PWWTU. This new group was created so that we, as a local organization, can better listen to and serve the needs of female anglers.

Our aim is to partner with female anglers who: want to fish together, learn more about the sport, support each other’s fishing growth and have fun! As women – we have the ability to become some of the best anglers – and our chapter wants to support that growth!

If this group interests you or you have any questions – please contact Jodie Minor or Nora Cline at [email protected]
