IGFA Launches Online Angling Modules for Kids

The IGFA is excited to announce the recent launch of its new Online Angling Modules for kids with the release of the Intro to Fishing module.

Available to the public at no charge, the IGFA’s Intro to Fishing module offers an immersive curriculum covering angling basics and safety, aquatic and marine biology, fish anatomy, environmental stewardship and more. The IGFA’s Intro to Fishing module is the first of several IGFA Online Angling Modules planned for release and includes the following courses presented on a fun, interactive learning platform: The Fish, The Habitat, The Basics, The Ethical Angler and The IGFA. The goal of the IGFA Online Angling Modules is to provide young and/or novice anglers with a strong foundation of angling knowledge in a comfortable, virtual setting that will give them the confidence to get out and go fishing in a responsible and ethical way.

Each child who completes the IGFA’s Intro to Fishing module will receive a customized certificate and will be counted towards the IGFA’s 80th anniversary initiative to teach 100,000 kids to fish. Building the next generation of ethical and conservation-minded anglers will ensure that there are future stewards and advocates for marine and freshwater species and habitats, and it will help develop productive, lifelong relationships between individuals and the outdoors.

The IGFA Intro to Fishing module can be accessed through the IGFA’s website using the following link: https://learn-to-fish.igfa.org/. There is no cost to complete the module and those wishing to participate are only required to register once before beginning the courses.
