The 2024 IGFA Permit Invitational

October 1-4, 2024


The IGFA Permit Invitational is a premier fly fishing tournament held annually with the goal of creating a competitive atmosphere to celebrate a world-class inshore game fish, the sport of fly fishing and to promote the ethics and programs of the IGFA.    

We are excited to hold this premier event in the Lower Florida Keys, from October 1-4, 2024, out of the beautiful Ocean’s Edge Resort & Marina. All proceeds from the IGFA Permit Invitational benefit the IGFA’s conservation programs and initiatives.

The IGFA hosts an online auction to coincide with the annual IGFA Permit Invitational. Anglers from around the world can bid on world-class fly fishing trips, tackle, artwork, and more! All proceeds from the IGFA Permit Invitational and the online auction go to support the IGFA’s conservation programs.  To support this fundraising effort please consider donating an item, trip or service to the IGFA Permit Invitational.
