    to South America William King Gregory left and Clive Firth compare notes during the Australia New Zealand expedition The original version of the IGFA logo was designed by the well known artist Lynn Bogue Hunt The first IGFA Year Book was published in 1943 and contained a list of officers member scientific institutions and fishing clubs field reports from International Committee members around the world as well as these preambles The World Wide Fraternity of the Game Fishermen Standards for Angling The Big Game Fish in Science Before 1939 there was no universal code of sporting ethics to guide ocean anglers in their pursuits Some rules pertaining to sporting conduct were in effect at certain well established fishing clubs but they varied according to the dictates of each club The idea of a worldwide association of marine anglers had been brewing for some time in England Australia and the United States and the first steps in this direction were taken in the late 1930 s by members of the British Tunny Club who hoped to establish headquarters in England to formulate rules for ethical angling The threat of war however interrupted their plans Before 1939 there was no universal code of sporting ethics to guide ocean anglers in their pursuit At that same time Michael Lerner was organizing a fishing expedition to the waters of Australia and New Zealand in conjunction with the American Museum of Natural History in New York He heard of the British Tunny Club s plans and when he arrived in Australia he looked up one of the country s finest anglers Clive Firth to discuss the idea with him Firth was well aware of the angling feats of Californians Floridians Long Islanders and others He felt that England and her colonies would accept American judgement as sporting and impartial and that Americans should be the ones to devise and administer these ethical angling rules Dr William King Gregory head of the Departments of Ichthyology and Comparative Anatomy at the American Museum of Natural History also was a member of the Australia New Zealand expedition He was particularly enthusiastic about the idea of a worldwide sportfishing association headquartered in the United States and immediately suggested that it might be possible to affiliate such an organization with the Museum His interest in such an association and the information it could provide to scientists was the beginning of the IGFA s lasting connection with scientists and scientific institutions When the members of the Australia New Zealand expedition returned to the U S letters were written to outstanding anglers fishing clubs and tackle manufacturers soliciting their opinions regarding the formation of an international association of marine angling clubs The response was highly favorable and on June 7 1939 the International Game Fish Association was formally launched in a meeting held at the American Museum of Natural History Present were William King Gregory who became the first president of the association Michael Lerner angler writer Van Campen Heilner and Francesca
