Milton, Ontario (PRWEB) April 14, 2007
Milton, Ontario based Womenfishing.com. (http://www.womenfishing.com) had over 100,000 visitors and growing.
According to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service there are 34.1 million anglers in America and approximately 26 percent are women. Additionally, of the 28.4 million freshwater anglers in America, 26 percent are women. The numbers of women anglers continue to rise as witnessed by the increasing presence of women in tournaments.
"Anybody can fish. Fish don't discriminate as to who catches them, be it male or female, young or old. People today are searching for something that is different from the ordinary, they are looking for new experiences and this is found through fishing," says http://www.womenfishing.com founder and avid angler, Terri MacKinnon.
"We want to share our passion for fishing and the outdoors with other women and introduce them and their families to a healthy lifestyle." Says Ms. MacKinnon.
Terri MacKinnon started 5 years ago with a vision and founded Fishergirl acknowledging that there was a need for women to be recognized. She then went on to participate in the Women's Bassmasters Tour and realized that there was a bigger piece of the puzzle still missing. http://www.womenfishing.com became a reality. "I realized that it was difficult to find out what was really out there for women. I started to put information together and realized it needed to be shared, then it just took on a life of its own." says Terri Mackinnon founder.
The site is dedicated to fishing and the outdoors. We are not species oriented. Our goal is to be the portal to where, what and who is out there. We are a place to share our experiences and laugh about them. Our mission is to educate and inspire others to take a chance and try something new, to think not just outside of the box, but to actually go outside of the box. To explore, to discover to enjoy!
Women are out there, study's show that they are fishing. Industry experts surmise that while fishing overall appeared to be in a slow decline as the core fisher people, namely men, aged and leave the sport. It's now the women who are picking up the slack in fishing participation. The 2001 National U.S. Fishing Survey determined that of the 10 most popular women's sports & recreational activities, fishing shows the strongest growth with 10.8% increase in participation. We can only anticipate that these numbers will continually to be increasing as we see the interest and sport expanding by organization like the B.A.S.S/ESPN Women's Tour finally taking notice.
http://www.womensfishing.com is also not about being North American, country's from all over the world have women that love to fish. England and Australia already show remarkable interest from women that are out participating.
Womensfishing.com is Global, and its growth will be targeted to women that love the outdoors everywhere. The online site is growing and expanding rapidly, with Radio and video streams to be added shortly. Applications for advertising and sponsorship are now being taken. Mackinnon adds "It is extremely important that we be selective, we have chosen a different approach to our advertising. Its about what's good for women that will be considered." Women are the budgeters and decision makers for most purchases, we want them to know that we recommend and stand behind the company's that we feature."
"We also decided to select company's that believe in Women and their choice to go out and fish". says MacKinnon.
Ko-Man-Chi Rods and Baits (http://www.ko-man-chi.com) also saw the need and the marketplace and are currently working on creating a line of products for Womenfishing. Offering top quality products and affordable prices we felt that it would be a great partnership. The new product lines will be online shortly.
