Lauderdale, Florida , LLGF has over 5,000 graduates and is the largest organization in the world whose objective is to introduce women to fishing.
The national organization sponsors numerous weekend seminars each year that teach women fishing techniques at all levels - dubbed "The No-Yelling School of Fishing"!

Fisheries Service Introduces New Public Input Process
To Encourage Citizen Engagement
-By J. Davidsburg
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fisheries Service is making it easier and more efficient for the public to share their thoughts and ideas on potential fisheries regulations....
While participation in the online process has become more effective, attendance at the public meetings has declined sharply. Because of expense, effort and response, such meetings are no longer merited.
To accommodate everyone, DNR's new, expanded process will provide opportunities to gain information and get involved, via:
- Traditional news distribution through mainstream media outlets
- Email outreach to keep stakeholders informed - dnr.state.md.us/fisheries/emailcontact.asp.
- Social media outreach through Facebook and Twitter
- Public meetings organized to address particularly controversial issues.
- Online forums hosted by Fisheries staff to encourage discussion and collect comments concerning specific issues.
- Publication in special interest and regional outlets
...DNR's ultimate goal is to ensure that the public is aware of and educated about potential regulatory changes, and that citizens have ample time and resources to provide input before formal proposals are submitted to the Maryland legislature for consideration and approval.
