First of not being a perv etc, are they any woman on here who fish, been to loads of places from Cornwall, Brixham, weymouth all over S.Wales and have never seen a woman fishing, seen a few with husbands/boyfriends etc but only seem to go for a day out and not fish, this cant be a male only sport can be a bit messy and smelly on times but being the modern times and "girl power" and all that that cant put them of!.
Maybe fishing into the dark on your own may seem a bit dangerious but i'm sure us real anglers on here can help overcome this by letting them join us and "looking after" each other, anyway they will cook the fish better than us lol..
Only wondered as this came up in work...look forward to hear your replys and views.

There are a number of female anglers on this site including, Sallu Sludge Bucket, Congaqueen, Littlemissmermaid etc. You just need to keep your eyes open and you will find female anglers.

I'm always out fishing, once i overcame the initial smelly fish guts thing(still not keen on rag worm tho horrible little buggers).
But I love it. If i could I'd be out fishing 24/7. But you have to come to Pembrokeshire (West Wales) to witness it. lol

P.S At the last WSF welsh league match at Freshwater East, there were a couple of mature ladies fishing next to me & kellogs. Not only did they completely outfish everyone on the beach, one of the hubby's brought them there flask & sarnies!!!! Now im sure theres a message to all you guys out there!

I fished next to a lady on Swanage Pier last year from this forum ..... username 'dallydog' ... I believe, who certainly knew what she was doing.
I have noticed that the number of young girls fishing on local harbour walls/piers seems to equal or outnumber the boys.

one of my coaches i had when i was a junior is a woman. she taught me a lot of the skills i use now. she used to fish for england and now coaches the home junior shore team.

there's also another england lady in my area, haven't seen her for a while though. both can hold there own against most of the fellas on the beach. they deffo do exist.

Dallydog (Sue) lives down that way. She came on a couple of lads weeks last year with myself, Raymondo94B and Dingbat to Weymouth and Dartmouth.

I took up fishing about 18 months ago now. My husband had no interest in it till I started. There is nothing better than being out there on the rocks on a nice summer day. This picture was taken while I was fishing one of the marks featured in Stores book the Codling Crouch

Sounds like Joyce to me! She is also the Manager of the Junior team for the Home Internationals at Youghal, Co Cork.

Wish them good luck, along with the Youth team, these are the future of Sea Angling.
