Women's Fishing Expo Overview - The Fisherman

Women’s Fishing Expo Overview

DEC and NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation held their second annual Women’s Fishing Expo recently at Connetquot River State Park Preserve. The Expo provided hands-on instruction and experiential learning in a fun and supportive environment. This free event was run primarily by female anglers and fisheries professionals who taught fishing basics and intermediate fishing skills, fly-casting instruction, and fisheries management. Participants also received a trout hatchery tour and marine fishing information.
