When UWOTF was founder in September 2016, the goal was to connect like minded women. One of the ways we’ve been successful is by posting photos of women who are real and anyone can relate to. These photos have included different ages, height, body types, hair color, fly fishing experience, brands, locations, fishing techniques, fish species, etc. As our community grows we want to make sure that ALL WOMEN are represented, feel safe and are welcomed. UWOTF’s evolution will be to continue to share everything above but also different ethnicities, sexual orientation and women identification.
