Join us in celebrating The International Game Fish Association’s

20th Annual IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

The greatest accomplishments in sportfishing are far more extraordinary than a great catch alone. While angling skill is certainly at the core of the sport, captains, scientists, conservationists, writers and fishing industry leaders have all made outstanding contributions to recreational angling.

The International Game Fish Association will welcome five angling legends into the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame this fall based on their significant contributions to the sport. The Class of 2018 includes industry innovators, world record seekers and angling pioneers: Marty Arostegui, John Barrett, Ralph G. Christiansen Jr., Frederic Halford and Frank Johnson.

The 20th Annual IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held Saturday, September 15, 2018, at Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium in Springfield, Missouri. The cocktail reception begins at 6pm in the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame followed by the Induction Ceremony at 7pm. Individual tickets to the event are available for $225 each and table sponsorship begin at $3,000. For more information, please contact IGFA Development Director, Eric Combast, at 954-924-4235 or email: ecombast@igfa.org.
