Fishing Clubs and Cabo Blanco Award Pins and Medals

Fishing club organizations like Cabo Blanco offered award and honor badges if the fish caught met the minimum weight requirements. Giving out award and honor badges by fishing organizations has always been a tradition. Below are some examples of the badge variations. The Tuna Cup Match in Nova Scotia was held in the 1940's with teams competing from the US, Canada and the UK. Kip Farrington's participation made the event receive world wide attention. The Cabo Blanco Fishing Club in Peru was the exclusive fishing club where the world record marlin was caught. Founded in 1951 by Kip Farrington, membership was limited to 20 members with a yearly fee of $10,000. Once again, Kip Farrington's participation and the availability of large marlin made the club famous. The gold Tuna Cup pin and the Cabo Blanco pins are very collectable. These medals and badges are sought after by collectors today. Anyone that has one of these pins, please contact me.
