Where in the world are Passports to Fishing events? Connecticut, USA! This kit was sent to the Northern Region of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in 2019 to assist with fishing-related merit badge programs, scout camps, Certified Angling Instructor trainings, and community events in the region. 🎣After coordinating with Troop 777, a recruitment event was hosted in April at the West Hill Lake in New Hartford. Kit materials assisted scouts with learning their knots, how to rig a rod, and how to cast. One of the leaders had this to say about the day, “On behalf of Troop 777 and the BSA, I wanted to thank you for providing all the support and the equipment. We have more than a few Scouts who now want to complete the fishing merit badge. Several want to return to this lake and fish the deepest part later this summer.” 🎣The IGFA is proud to continue its support of BSA youth angling education through the Passports to Fishing program and will contribute to distribute kits every year.
