The bathroom problem.

Men have a clear advantage in this respect, but for many female anglers, this is no big deal. It's no different than if they were hiking, backpacking or biking, except when they're on the water. On most boats up to 20 feet long, including the vast majority of boats used in freshwater, there's no john, or head as it's called in nautical lingo. If you can go ashore, you can usually find some privacy to answer the call of nature. Bring some tissues, just in case.

A gift idea.

Besides getting some good outdoor wear or books for mom, a good gift would be enrolling her in a women-only multi-day outdoor skills workshop. Many states have them. Called 'Becoming an Outdoors Woman' in most places, and operated under the auspices of the state natural resources agency, this program is only several years old but has caught on widely. Some three-day workshops cost between $150 and $200.

Participants can select from a wide range of sessions that offer information and hands-on instruction. Fishing is one of the most popular skill sessions, followed by outdoor photography, canoeing, motorboat handling, camping, map and compass use, and nature crafts. These are especially good for beginners and have in part been successful because skills are taught in a non-threatening (non-male dominant) and supportive manner. Contact the state natural resources agency (many have it on their web site) for details, or visit my Web site at
