Where in the world are Passports to Fishing kits? Minnesota, USA 🇺🇸! This kit went to one of the Area Leads in the Central Region of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and has already been utilized in Minnesota and South Dakota. In 2019, 22 kits were distributed to national BSA Area Leads as part of a growing partnership between BSA and the IGFA to assist in youth angling education efforts. 🎣 For 2021, the IGFA plans to get a Passports to Fishing kit in the hands of approved and trained BSA Fishing Committees around the country. Kit contents will assist Certified Angling Instructors’ efforts to recruit and educate Scouts about basic fishing techniques and environmental stewardship concepts as they complete the necessary requirements for their Fishing Merit Badge. The IGFA looks forward to seeing more Scouts earn their fishing-based merit badges this year! In the meantime, check out other kit locations and past event photos ➡️ bit.ly/3ekEtxU! #fishIGFA Bass Pro Shops Zebco Plano Fishing Rapala Mercury Marine Guy Harvey ... See MoreSee Less
