World Record Achievement Awards - Sold Out

The pursuit of great fish is the essence of the IGFA – since being founded in 1939, we have tracked record catches from around the world and continue to do so today. The 11th Annual World Record Achievement Awards ceremony, presented by Hugh's Culinary and Papa's Pilar, honors the top record producing anglers and manufacturers over the past year, as well as those anglers receiving the IGFA’s Lifetime Achievement Award - and for the first time, the Angler's Choice Award.

Compiled from the 2014 IGFA World Record Game Fishes book “Top Ten” list, awards will be presented to anglers and tackle manufacturers who have achieved the most records in freshwater, saltwater, fly rod, junior and All-Tackle Length categories in 2013.

New Zealand's Tindales Win the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award

In addition to honoring the top achievements of the past year, the World Record Achievement Awards will also recognize the latest two anglers to have achieved 100 world records in their lifetimes. This year's Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented to IGFA Representative Scott Tindale and his wife, Sue - the first husband and wife fishing duo to achieve the award at the same time.

“We are excited to congratulate the Tindales on their 100 record milestones,” said IGFA Records Coordinator Jack Vitek, “and we look forward to celebrating their historic accomplishments in the fields of sport fishing and marine conservation.”
