On Friday, October 26, 2018, IGFA Trustees, Staff and Representatives participated in an incredible Kids School fishing clinic held in Deltebre, Spain.

Organized by IGFA Representatives Lorenzo and Raul Roca, the Kids School attracted more than 250 children who spent nearly three hours learning about the basics of angling and environmental stewardship in both a classroom setting and with hands-on casting and fishing.

The Rocas worked with the local mayor of Deltebre to arrange for schools to close early in order for the students to attend the clinic. While addressing the children before the clinic began, IGFA President Nehl Horton stressed the importance of ethical angling, respecting the outdoors and educating others on how to do so.

To date, the Kids School program has educated more than 1,000 children throughout Spain with the ambitious goals to continue expanding throughout Europe in the coming years. All children educated through the Kids School program will be counted towards the IGFA's initiative to teach 100,000 kids to fish by the end of 2019.

The IGFA thanks Lorenzo Roca for arranging this special event, and also thanks all who participated and volunteers in teaching these 250 children to fish ethically and to respect the environment.
