    I know several women who aren't afraid to bait a hook, but I think it generally falls outside of the stereotypical "sugar and spice and everything nice" perception of females.  Young girls who grow up fishing, shooting, etc. are generally labeled as tomboys, and for some reason there is a certain stigma attached to that in some circles.  Personally, I love a woman who baits her own hook!  It means we have a common interest.

    Many women never had the opportunity to fish growing up. I've found those who did, are in fact avid fisherwomen. I wrote a hub on that can change if given the chance to go fishing though.

    Some women don't like getting their hands dirty. Even though some women are not afraid of baiting the fish hook, they act as if they are frightened of it. That way they don't have to deal with doing something they don't want to do.
    smile I do the second. Since I grew up fishing with my grandfather and family, I'm not nervous of it and I actually enjoy baiting the hook. Even so, it's easier getting someone else to do it.

    I'll do it but I think it's kind of sad to hook the poor fella. But I guess it's the cycle of life. :-(

    There are plenty of women who are not afraid to bait a hook! I am an example of one who is not afraid. Fishing is gaining popularity by many females. In fact, entire magazines are written specifically aimed at the woman who fishes. For example, Dunn magazine, an online fly fishing journal, written for a woman, by women. I think as the previous writer states classifying a woman as sugar and spice would lead to your false belief on women.
