The International Angling Confederation was officially constituted within the premises of the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) in Rome on 22 February 1952.

The International Sport Fishing Confederation is a world-wide organization aiming at the promotion, co-ordination and improvement of all the activities related to fishing from a purely sporting standpoint. The Confederation is an organization of public utility which co-operates with other associations pursuing the same goals for the conservation of the environment, the release of alive fishes at the end of the events, the protection of youth and the promotion of tourism.

The activities of the Confederation, being of a sporting, technical, scientific, and cultural nature, are open to everybody, without racial, social, political or religious discrimination, in accordance with the principles of Olympic Ideal. This is the only organization which represents the large community of sport fishermen and anglers. At present the number of National Federations adhering to the CIPS amounts to 132 as representation of 66 Nations.

CIPS head office is based in Rome, at the Palazzo delle Federazioni, Viale Tiziano, 70.
