(Oxford, Wisconsin) August 20, 2018 — Angie Scott and Wild Barb Carey have collaborated to launch a new podcast entitled “The Woman Angler & Adventurer.” It can be found at www.thewomanangler.com and on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, Stitcher or wherever you enjoy your podcasts. The show grew out of Carey’s guest appearance on Scott’s original podcast entitled “It Pays to Fish.”
Scott launched “It Pays to Fish” in early 2018. The focus of the show was to highlight and interview people making a living in all different aspects of the fishing industry, especially breaking outside of the more traditional roles such as guides and tournament anglers. Scott wanted to shine a spotlight on outside-the-box careers such as marine artists and mobile-app creators. Just a few episodes in, Angie interviewed Barb Carey, founder of Wisconsin Women Fish and The Women Ice Angler Project. That episode quickly garnered new levels of interaction and excitement. The wheels turned; Scott and Carey soon collaborated to transform the show to focus on women with a passion for fishing and other outdoor adventures like hunting, camping and hiking. “The Woman Angler & Adventurer” podcast was born. The mission is simple: to inspire, empower and connect other women to get out there and experience amazing outdoor adventures of all kinds.
“I’m so pumped about teaming up with Barb for this show,” Angie Scott said. “With all of her experience and connections, I have no doubt together we’re going to take it to the next level and provide some amazing content for our listeners. The Woman Angler & Adventurer movement has officially begun!”
“Wild Barb” Carey started in radio on the Great Wild Radio show in 2014 and has won several Association of Great Lakes Outdoor Writers (AGLOW) awards for her podcasts and magazine articles. Barb works full time to promote women enjoying the outdoor sports and leads women on adventures through Wisconsin Women Fish, the organization she founded in 2006 (www.wiwomenfish.com). Carey is on the National Pro Staff for Off Shore Tackle, St Croix Rods, Lund boats and is a licensed U.S.C.G. Captain. Ice fishing is also a top priority and Carey is a Clam Ice Team Pro and pro staffer for Jiffy and Vexilar. In 2015, Barb founded the Women Ice Angler Project to create media content to showcase that women also ice fish even though they are underrepresented in media coverage and marketing emphasis. A leader in the industry, Carey was captain of the first U.S. Angling team to compete in the Match Fishing World Championships in Hungary in 2017. A busy seminar speaker and certified D.N.R. angler educator, Barb offers classes and clinics to help others improve their skills.
“Women have so many interesting stories to tell and I am excited to team up with Angie Scott to share those stories with our listeners,” Barb Carey said. “Angie’s experience in the music business will be a great asset to the show, and our geographical diversity will bring a broad listener base from around the country. My hope is that a listener will become inspired by one of our shows and say, ‘If she can do it, I can do it.’ That’s my goal.”
Originally from Minnesota, Angie Scott grew up fishing in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” with her family. Scott relishes her fond memories of summer vacations up north where they would stay at a cabin and fish all day and watch the sun go down out on the water at night, targeting her favorite species of walleye. “The Lake” continues to draw Angie back even though home is now Nashville, Tennessee and she works in the music industry. In 2015, she bought her own pontoon, well equipped for fishing, and it’s been “fish on” ever since. Now she spends her fishing days on Nashville’s Percy Priest Lake, and she recently joined a local bass fishing club where out of 30+ members she is the only female. Her mission is to change that.
