Great outdoors: Females aim to break stereotypes

The sun comes up over the horizon as day breaks and the wilderness awakens. On the banks of the river or hidden within a blind sits a woman waiting to break a societal stereotype by catching a fish or harvesting game. Though strides have been made over the last two decades to combat the ideas that outdoor activities are only for men, many still feel others are surprised when they find out they take part those activities.

Reel fun: Fishing team catches on, provides new opportunities for students

The sun rises over the horizon as the light reflects off the glassy surface of the water. The boat rocks back and forth as the guys watch their corks bob up and down slowly in the water, waiting for that first bite of the morning. Last year, students joined a fishing team that travels around Texas and competes. The tranquility of fishing is mixed with the intensity of competition as they participate as members of the fishing team which is sponsored by Darren Nobles who works at Rudder where he sponsors their team as well.
