The IGFA - Chester H. Wolfe Outstanding Sportsmanship Award

The IGFA – Chester H. Wolfe Outstanding Sportsmanship Award, established in 2011, is given in memory of Mr. Wolfe and his love of sport fishing and the fellowship the sport promotes. Receipt of this award is based on merit, fair play, graciousness, respect, and ethical behavior that an angler displays while fishing in a tournament. The recipient will be considered for this award based on their love of fishing, respect towards the tournament officials and rules, as well as the basic competitive nature the sport encourages.

The spirit of this award is best summed up by Mrs. Wolfe: “Sportsmanship expresses an aspiration or ethos that the activity will be enjoyed for its own sake with consideration for fairness, ethics, respect and sense of fellowship with ones competitors.

” The IGFA – Chester H. Wolfe Outstanding Sportsmanship Award celebrates and serves as a testament to Chester’s dedicated love of fishing and sportsmanship.
