The Women in Recreational Fishing and Boating (WIRFAB) Network inspires and encourages female participation in fishing and boating.

Created in 2018 by the Victorian Fisheries Authority, WIRFAB promotes knowledge sharing and recreational fishing and boating activities for women through its online communities and events.

Part of the Victorian Government's plan to get more Victorians fishing, more often, WIRFAB invites women of all skill levels to join the community and share their stories and tips.

The online community currently has over 4,300 members and continues to grow daily.
