Girls of Game & Fish: Angler Edition

Girls of Game & Fish: Angler Edition

Here at Game & Fish, we think it's about time we celebrated our women anglers — the Girls of Game & Fish.

Not only do the women in our life bring us a great deal of joy, we're also proud to share our time on the water with them. It's great when we're catching fish, but that just doesn't compare to the moments we get to watch our girls reel in a keeper.

And since there's no better way to usher in summertime than to showcase some of the pretty smiles that add a little sunshine to our lives each day, we're proud to present our first installment of the Girls of Game & Fish.

We've collected the best reader photos, all that display the talent behind the beautiful smiles of these women anglers. From backyard bass to saltwater trophies, the women in these photos have plenty to be proud of. Try to enjoy the gallery as much as these gals enjoy fishing.


Send us your women angler photos over at the Game & Fish Camera Corner and you might just make it into the next edition of the Girls of Game & Fish. Here's to a great summer of fishing.
