Angling for Women Workshop Set for Nov. 22

Nov. 15, 1996

Sherry D. Ruslink, licensed bass fishing guide on Lake Fork and a renowned tournament angler, will present a workshop to Baylor University female students, faculty and staff on basic fishing skills from 2-6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, at the Baylor Marina.

The free workshop will include topics such as basic fish behavior, equipment and tackle and basic casting instruction. Ruslink presents similar workshops as part of the Texas Parks and Wildlife's statewide Outdoor Women series.

"Women characteristically do not choose some outdoor pursuits because they don't have anyone to teach them," said Dale Connally, assistant professor and director of the leisure services division of the Health, Human Performance and Recreation department at Baylor. "But Ruslink presents information in a non-threatening manner. She makes everyone feel comfortable."

Ruslink also will address Connally's Introduction to Recreation and Leisure Services class at 9 a.m. that same day. She will speak about the uniqueness of making a living as a fishing guide and tournament angler.

"She is a well-respected person and she teaches all over the state," Connally said.
