Youth Angling Instructor
Joanna Olczyk, originally from Poland, teaches the IGFA’s hands-on fishing programs and camps for children and adults. Olczyk joined the IGFA as a volunteer in 1999, shortly after the IGFA Headquarters opened its doors. She believes you are never too young to start fishing and never too old to learn something new about fishing. One of her passions is to teach as many people as possible about the joy of fishing and how to do it ethically and safely so the environment and fish populations continue to thrive. In her free time, Olczyk enjoys salt- and freshwater fishing, wildlife photography, nature walking, painting, and baking.
