ABLE WOMEN AMBASSADOR TEAM APPLICATION

Members of the Able Women Ambassador Team serve as unpaid public endorsers of the Able Women Foundation by spreading the word of the physical and emotional benefits that fly fishing brings to its participants. Ambassadors are involved in the following activities:

  • Making occasional appearances at various events across the country, including community service events, education events, and trade-shows.
  • Speaking before various audiences about their relationship with fly fishing and describing the role its played in their life.
  • Representing the many positive benefits of fly fishing in their individual activities and via their own personal social media feeds by using the hashtag #ablewomenflyfish.

Finally, while the Able Women Foundation, Inc. by no means enforces a strict “code of conduct,” Ambassadors are required to sign a publicity contract as representatives of the Foundation and its sponsors. In particular, Ambassadors are responsible for acting as spokeswomen for how fly fishing can influence a healthy life. Ambassadors are, in effect, role models of healthy living. We ask you to be conscious of this in filling out your application.

What is your occupation?

Would you consider yourself a Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced or Expert fly fisherwoman? (Please note: Ambassadors of Able Women is not predicated on your level of skill in fly fishing! Ultimately, your relationship with the sport and the role it's played in your life matters more to us than how advanced your skills are.)

Is there a particular moment or event you can describe to us that captures the essence of your story and helped define your relationship with fly fishing?
