Where in the world are Passports to Fishing kits? San Juan, Puerto Rico! IGFA Representative Ricardo Lefranc and CFA Caribbean Fishing Academy recently hosted a group of Scouts at the Club Náutico de San Juan to learn the basics of recreational fishing. 🎣 Not only did the Scouts go through the Passports to Fishing stations with a heavy focus on conservation of game fish, but they also had the opportunity to learn about boats, equipment, and pumping and reeling in a fish using a trolling rod and fighting belt. 🙌🏼Congratulations to all who worked hard to make this event a success!
