Fishing Clubs

There are many reasons to join a fishing club!

  • Fishing clubs give fishers access to a fantastic group of people who love to talk about fishing as much as they do.
  • They give a sense of contributing to the local community.
  • Club membership provides an opportunity to participate in social and competitive events.
  • They give the ability to improve fishing by learning from more experienced fishers or to share your own knowledge.

Club membership also provides a means to contribute to the political landscape of fishing, and have your say in issues that affect you and your favourite fisheries.

Fishing clubs can also signup to VRFish’s mailing list using this online form.
