On this week’s episode of The Woman Angler and Adventurer, Barb Carey records an episode from a WI Women Fish event called Fish Camp, and there were 70 Women in the audience. This is the first show of this nature and it was exciting to be recording with a room full of cheering anglers. The women were gathered to attend the 12th annual Fish Camp, which is a long weekend of fishing, learning, meeting new people, and basking in an environment of support and camaraderie. This years motto was “ If she can do it, I can do it!”
Fish Camp started with 20 Women and zero boats, and has progressed to filling three resorts with 70 Women. The shoreline and docks are filled with boats, and two pontoons are rented to be sure all 70 get out to fish the 12,942 acres of the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage. The boats range from kayaks to $70,000 tournament boats and the fishing experience ranges from new angler to seasoned professional.
