As global leaders in the promotion of ethical, responsible angling practices, the IGFA is thrilled to announce a new partnership with TackleWebs, the innovators behind the TackleWebs & IGFA Proper Support Weigh Bag. The revolutionary new product was designed with the conservation of game fish at its core and marks a significant step forward in promoting sustainable fishing practices among anglers worldwide. In turn, each bag sold supports the IGFA’s game fish conservation initiatives.

The TackleWebs & IGFA Proper Support Weigh Bag provides a safe, stress-reducing alternative to traditional fish weighing methods. By employing a porous bag that offers gentle support, this product ensures the well-being of the fish, reducing injury and stress during the catch-and-release process. Additionally, the TackleWebs Proper Support Weigh Bag allows anglers to easily and safely weigh their catches without compromising the fish's health, aligning perfectly with the IGFA’s push for anglers to document, weigh, and release the potential record catches whenever possible.

"Partnering with TackleWebs represents yet another example of our ongoing commitment to promote ethical angling practices," said Jason Schratwieser, IGFA President. "The TackleWebs Proper Support Weigh Bag is not just an innovative product—it's a reflection of our collective responsibility to the environment and the ethical stewardship of our aquatic ecosystems. By supporting the adoption of such practices, we are not only enhancing the fishing experience but also ensuring the health and vitality of game fish populations for future generations."

To further demonstrate their commitment to conservation, TackleWebs has generously agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds from every weigh bag sold to support the IGFA’s Conservation Programs, aiding efforts to ensure the sustainability of game fish populations worldwide.

The IGFA and TackleWebs will collaborate on various educational initiatives to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable fishing practices among the angling community.

“Teaming up with the IGFA allows us to further our commitment to ethical angling,” said Captain Mike Ortego, TackleWebs founder. “The Proper Support Weigh Bag is just the beginning, and we are proud to support the vital conservation work done by the IGFA.”
