Angling Achievement Awards

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 12th Annual World Record Achievement Awards ceremony, presented by Hugh's Culinary and Papa's Pilar, honors the top record producing anglers over the past year. Additionally, the IGFA will be honoring the 2015 recipients of the prestigous Bob Herder Light Tackle and Gil Keech Heavy Tackle Awards, the Anglers' Choice Award, as well as those anglers receiving the IGFA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Compiled from the 2015 IGFA World Record Game Fishes book “Top Ten” list, awards will be presented to anglers who have achieved the most records in freshwater, saltwater, fly rod, junior and All-Tackle Length categories in 2014.
