A once-in-a lifetime award, the Delaware Elite Angler is the most esteemed level of angling accomplishment that the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife recognizes.

The distinction of “Delaware Elite Angler” acknowledges the determination, perseverance and level of accomplishment of those anglers who have reached this prestigious title.
