‘’These are legitimate Florida anglers and we are showcasing the women you’ll find everyday fishing the waters of the Sunshine State,” said Blair Wickstrom, Publisher of Florida Sportsman magazine. “You see more women fishing every day. These ladies that grace our covers and calendars weren’t chosen for just their looks, they were chosen for their skills in-shore and off-shore. They are the real deal.”
