IGFA HISTORY




The IGFA remains committed to the collection of historical information and artifacts related to the history of sport fishing.  To that end we would like to encourage individuals, organizations, and clubs to contribute materials of historical significance to the  E. K. Harry Library and to the Museum, where they will be secured and preserved for future generations and serve as reference material for researchers. Names of contributors will be acknowledged in the IGFA’s quarterly International Angler magazine and on the IGFA website, and may be featured in future articles about donors and donations.

For more information please contact IGFA Museum Manager Gail M. Morchower at gmorchower@igfa.org or call 954-924-4355
