Fishing Club Supporter

Fishing clubs enable our fishers to come together, learn, socialise and enjoy some friendly competition. What we also know is fishing clubs are a significant part of the community and our recreational fishing sector.

Clubs are already accomplishing great things by advocating for better fishing access, providing advice on fish stocking, getting involved in habitat projects, running children’s fishing programs, contributing to citizen science and fundraising for worthy causes in their community. We want to play a role to support your fishing club to grow and be stronger. The first step to make this happen is to become a club member of VRFish.

There are no sign-up fees for fishing clubs to join VRFish as a standard fishing club supporter member.

We believe it’s our role as the peak body to have effective communication links and strong relationships with all fishing clubs in Victoria and their members. This is why we have decided not to place any financial charge on becoming a standard VRFish club member. We also recognise that fishing clubs form the backbone of many local and regional projects and generously give their time to make fishing better.
