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.

Are you ever “too young” or “too old” to learn how to fish? 🎣 During a community event celebrating the Florida Everglades a few years ago, this young girl was told she was “too little” to learn and to go fishing that day. Too little? Nonsense!

IGFA staff and event volunteers handed her a rod, put some bait on, guided her, and success! Her bobber went down, her line went tight, and she reeled in her very first fish! 🐟 She never took her eyes off that fish, not even to look at the camera!

How old were you when you first learned how to fish?
