Virginia Angler Recognition Program (VARP)

On the average, Virginia anglers measure up over 6,000 trophy-size freshwater fish annually. Their accomplishments are recognized by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries through the Virginia Angler Recognition Program (VARP). Since 1963, when the program began, over 250,000 trophy fish awards have been issued.
