THE KAYAK EDGE
A beneficial way to get more women involved in fishing
#3 EMPOWERMENT BENEFITS
According to Stevenson, kayak fishing also offers opportunities for more women to challenge norms on the water and get involved in angling. “There are a lot of trailblazing women who are starting to break down barriers,” she says, herself included. For women new to the sport, she recommends reaching out on social media to women already involved with the “inclusive” kayak community, which is always open to helping newcomers. “There is absolutely nothing stopping women from learning to fish,” Stevenson says. “We all start from the beginning, regardless of age or gender. I think kayak fishing is a great way to get more women involved in the sport.”
