2012-12-08 00:00

THE roles of men and women have long been defined. Men are the providing protectors of our society whereas women are the nurturing home makers. Little boys spend weekend’s away learning to hunt or fish with their fathers while daddy’s little girls are left at home to practise the skills they will one day need to make a home of their own.

The role of women in angling is somewhat undecided. Women in fishing are often the wives, girlfriends, mothers or daughters of anglers. It is exceptionally rare that a woman gets involved in fishing through her own desire. Rather, women often become involved through sheer necessity or through a chance encounter with a sport that many of us were incapable of comprehending the thrill of and somehow it reels us in. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
