Women Anglers of Minnesota (WAM) was incorporated in 1977 as a way for women to fish together. It remains the oldest active fishing organization for women in the country! Whether you are a long time member or a new member, it is helpful to have information about all the ways you can be a part of this organization.


We are women who like to fish, and we like to spend time with each other, too. Together, we have fun and make a difference in our communities.
