IGFA Day 2021 is almost here

Our two-week celebration for International Angling Day 2021 begins next week! International Angling Day (IGFA Day) is a global celebration of recreational fishing created by the IGFA on our 80th Anniversary.


To celebrate this worldwide event we will be hosting limited youth and family fishing clinics around the world and sharing some exclusive content from the IGFA's E.K. Harry Library of Fishes vault through our social networks.

Online auction

The IGFA Day celebrations will continue on June 6-13 through the 2021 IGFA Online Auction. Don't miss your chance to bid on some great tackle, gear, artwork, apparel, fishing charters, and more while showing your support for the future of recreational angling.

Additional details on how you can participate on IGFA Day will be available next week so be sure to stay tuned.

Thank you for your support of the IGFA!
