CONCORD, N.H. – Women interested in learning to fish from a kayak can sign up now for a "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" (BOW) weekend workshop that will be held September 24-26, 2010, at Purity Spring Resort in Madison, N.H. Participants will learn how to rig their kayak for fishing; kayak fishing techniques, including casting, lures, bait and trolling; even what to do when you catch a fish!

The workshop fee of $275 includes meals and lodging at Purity Spring Resort (set on Purity Lake in New Hampshire's White Mountains), instruction, program materials and use of some equipment.
