About Us

Looking ahead the focus of the IGFA is to strengthen and expand IGFA’s global network, establish International Game Fish Angling Day (IGFA Day) on June 7, 2019, teach 100,000 kids to fish, launch three major signature research initiatives – two of them focused on fresh water science and re-establish the IGFA as a leader in recreational angling competitions.
