Proud Sponsor of the ICHA Fishing Derby

Proud Sponsor of the ICHA Fishing Derby
In 2003, EasyInsure team member, Pat Pagano, an avid fisherman, started the ICHA (Italian Canadian Handicapable Association) Fishing Derby in Windsor, Ontario. 

The yearly event has grown from 10 participants to now welcome more than 250 handicapable fishermen of all ages, becoming the largest derby of its kind and receiving national attention, televised Canada-wide and in the USA on the Canadian SportFishing TV Show, hosted by Italo Labignan. Further exposure for the derby has been seen on Sportsnet Network, WFN, CHCH, YES TV, and more. The ICHA welcomes people from all over southwestern Ontario to join in the fun of fishing, food, and entertainment while instilling a sense of community. 

We’re thrilled that Pat was awarded the Rick Amsbury Award of Excellence. This award is presented annually to an individual judged by the angling community based on their outstanding performance put forth through the course of the year.

Our EasyInsure family is a proud sponsor of this event and privileged to be one of many who support Pat’s continual efforts to share the joy of fishing with all. 

Check out the video highlights of the 2018 event, featuring the participants and Italo Labignan, the host of Canadian Sportfishing TV. 

We’re looking forward to the 17th annual event taking place spring 2019!
