The Adventurous Woman meets at Bill Jackson’s at 6:30 pm on the third Wednesday of each month (except December and January).
The Adventurous Woman club started as a small group of women that like to get together to fish and socialize. Founded by Michele Homer, an accomplished angler, the club later became a chapter of “Ladies Let’s Go Fishing.” As the club grew, so did the desire to expand beyond fishing into other outdoor activities. Once again the club became “The Adventurous Woman,” and added camping, kayaking and archery to the club activities. The club has more than 60 members and is growing. Members are always interested in new activities to experience the great outdoors. Have a husband who doesn’t want to go hiking, fishing or camping? Come join us for an adventure. Members have a wide range of outdoors experience. Any woman interested in getting outdoors is welcome to attend. Experience not required.
At the meetings we discuss past and upcoming trips and events. We also have a speaker. Program topics range from fishing to outdoors photography to local outdoors authors to what to look for when buying a kayak.
We plan at least one trip or event a month, sometimes more. These trips might be local, such as a kayaking or fishing trip to Fort De Soto or hiking at Brooker Creek Preserve. Sometimes we do overnight trips to explore another part of the state. We’ve been fishing in Mosquito Lagoon (some of us kayaked to an island and camped), enjoyed a long weekend in the Keys as well as in Cedar Key. On overnight trips we may camp out in tents or we might camp out in a motel, condo or bed and breakfast. We’ve done classes in archery, guns, pottery, painting and paddleboarding. With our strong background in fishing, we also do volunteer work with some local fishing tournaments.
