Underneath the Wave of Women Fishing

Women represent an important emerging audience for the fishing and boating industry. To grow this demographic, the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) and Ipsos conducted research among active, lapsed, and non-angler women to understand active female anglers’ mindsets and drivers, and what challenges exist to increasing participation.
