In all honesty, quotes like these speak the truth. Ample evidence already exists that women make incredible anglers, especially in the realm of record fishing. Take, for example, IGFA’s records for marlin— surely a manly fish if ever there ever was one. There are a number of current records where the women’s record for a given line class exceeds that for the men’s corresponding line class. Yet, I don’t think I’ve ever received a complaint from a man or woman over there being separate categories for saltwater records.
