Milton, Ontario based FisherGirl Inc. (www. fishergirl. com) has announced that their founder Terri MacKinnon, Âthe original FisherGirlÂ, is competing and fishing as a non-boater in ESPN/BASS WomenÂs Bass TourÂs (WBT) inaugural event on October 20-22 at Sam Rayburn Reservoir Jasper, Texas.
ÂWomenÂs fishing is at the same place today as the LPGA was before it became huge.Â says MacKinnon, ÂWeÂll be making history at this kick off event and IÂm thrilled to be a part of it.Â Just like FisherGirl, the WomenÂs Bass Tour is out to change the face of the sport fishing world by injecting some Âgirl powerÂ into it.
Created by women, for women, FisherGirl is a womenÂs outdoor lifestyle company whose mission it is to introduce women and girls to the joys and benefits of healthy living and the outdoors through fishing. Since its official launch in spring 2005, FisherGirl has been capturing the hearts and minds of industry insiders as well as women everywhere. Testimony to this is FisherGirlÂs recent win of the American Sportfishing AssociationÂs (ASA) prestigious New Product Showcase award - Best New Product in the Rod/Reel Combo category for its Mermaid line.
With fishing rods and outdoor gear in pink, purple, and blue, the look is about womenÂs creative expression. The perfect marriage of beauty and function, FisherGirlÂs rods are also specifically designed to be ergonomically correct for women. But it doesnÂt end there. The other part of FisherGirlÂs mission is to see a world without breast cancer. Partnering with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation that passion is taking flight with Cast for a CureÂ which donates 50% of the sales proceeds from FisherGirlÂs special edition Survival Rod line to breast cancer research.
TerriÂs upcoming schedule also includes participating in the 2005 Bass Pro/CrappieMasters National Championship on Old Hickory Lake, Hendersonville, TN October 12-15, 2005.
