Complete Angler Award Service Project: This option is ONLY for Scouts who have earned all three fishing-related merit badges - fishing, fly fishing and fish and wildlife management and would like to earn the Complete Angler Award. In addition to earning all three fishing-related merit badges the Scout has to complete one of the following four service projects. Scouts registering for the Complete Angler Award Service Project will be able to complete the service project at the skill center.
Your last step is to successfully complete one or more of the following projects:
1. Teach a Fishing or Fly Fishing merit badge skill to your troop, crew or team as part of a unit program activity.
2. Help instruct Cub Scouts on fishing skills or fishery management as part of a Cub Scout meeting or outing.
3. Participate in a local fishing derby or tournament, either a Scouting or Community event.
4. Complete a conservation project that will benefit a local fishery.
If a Scout is registering for a merit badge (fishing, fly fishing or fish and wildlife management) they CANNOT register for the BSA Complete Angler Service Project.
Note: Scouts registering for the Complete Angler Award Service Project MUST bring proof they have earned fishing, fly fishing and fish and wildlife management merit badges. They can bring their blue cards (or photocopies of their blue cards) for these merit badges or a signed letter from their Scoutmaster stating the Scout applying for the Complete Angler Award has earned fishing, fly fishing and fish and wildlife merit badges. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
