FT. LAUDERDALE, FL — Betty Bauman, Founder of “Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing!” (LLGF) was presented with the Bass Pro Shops Pass It On Award by the Florida Outdoor Writer’s Association. The award recognizes a FOWA member who has gone the extra mile to introduce other to the joys of the outdoors who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to do so.
Bauman has spent 20 years creating and managing LLGF educational programs to help more than 8,000 women from 44 states enter the sport of fishing in a non-intimidating atmosphere. The programs include education, hands-on skill practice, networking and a charter fishing experience. The Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing Foundation is a non profit 501 (c) (3) charity.
“This is such an honor to be recognized for our contributions to enable women and families to enjoy this sport and learn conservation,” commented LLGF Founder, Betty Bauman.
Known for its emphasis on conservation, LLGF offers weekend fishing universities focused on women and novice to mid-level experienced anglers. What sets this series apart is the one-on-one skill practice, including release, de-hooking, spin, net and fly casting, boat handling, trailer backing, knot tying, conservation and more. Most weekend events begin with a Friday networking reception. On Saturday are morning classes, lunch, afternoon hands-on skill practice and optional charter fishing on Sunday with fillet demonstration. LLGF also offers mini events held on a Saturday afternoon and international fishing adventures. The program focuses on women, their male guests and teens to include the family.
