Message from Nehl Horton, IGFA President.
Since 1939, the IGFA has been committed to the conservation of game fish and the promotion of ethical angling practices around the world.
The IGFA continues to exist today for the same reason it was started nearly 80 years ago - because people around the world love to fish! And the IGFA help recreational anglers to stoke their love of fishing by conserving game fish and promoting responsible, ethical angling.
But today, more than ever, recreational fishing is facing an uncertain future and the IGFA need support to sustain the sport we love.
Financial contribution will help to support the IGFA's "Five for the Future" initiatives in celebration of its 80th Anniverary on June 7, 2019:
-Strengthen and expand the international network of IGFA representatives, clubs, captains and members to increase IGFA’s presence and relevance in angling communities around the world.
-Establish International Game Fish Angling Day (IGFA Day) on June 7, 2019, as a platform to reach new anglers, educate them about ethical angling practices and activate them as ambassadors for the sport and advocates for game fish conservation.
-Teach 100,000 kids to fish in locations around the globe to help build a new generation of educated, ethical and accomplished anglers.
-Launch three major signature research initiatives – two of them focused on fresh water science – to better deliver on the IGFA’s commitment to game fish conservation.
-Re-establish the IGFA as a leader in recreational angling competitions focused on outstanding angler achievement, not cash prizes.
