Last week, the IGFA Education team hosted another Passports to Fishing E-Seminar. Young anglers tuned in to learn about the basics of fishing and the importance of conservation and stewardship. 🎣

The night would not be complete without sharing fishing stories and looking at some cool catches made by these young anglers including a swordfish and a snakehead! 🙌🏼

Stay tuned for more virtual educational programs but in the meantime, check out other available angling education resources ➡️ igfa.org/learning-modules/.

Kho Kok Theng recently set his first IGFA World Record while fishing the Murum Dam, Sarawak, Malaysia 🇲🇾. He landed this stunning 2.6-kilogram (5-pound, 11-ounce) two-barred barb (Hampala bimaculata) to set the new IGFA All-Tackle World Record. Kho was casting a Halco Tackle Sorcerer 90 and landed and released his record catch after properly documenting the weight from shore. Congratulations, Kho, on your first IGFA World Record. #fishIGFA ... See MoreSee Less

Fifteen years ago today, Hal Chittum III set the IGFA Men’s 6-kg (12 lb) Tippet Class World Record with this 23-kilogram (50-pound, 11-ounce) dogtooth tuna. Hal was fly fishing off the Great Barrier Reef in Lizard Island, Australia 🇦🇺, and landed the record doggie in 20-minutes after it struck a fly he casted off of the Don’t Ask Me skippered by Haydon Bell. Although this record is extremely impressive, it is hard to beat the 67.1 kilogram (147-pound, 14-ounce) record he set on 16-lb tippet the day before! #fishIGFA ... See MoreSee Less
