The Club is an Incorporated body, managed by a Committee following the rules set out in the Club's Constitution.

We ask our members to follow the Club's Code of ethics, which gives a guide to doing the right thing when fishing, traveling, camping, etc. There's nothing hard for you to do there, just things we are sure you would like everyone else to do too.

The Club owns an air conditioned holiday house at Kalbarri available for rent by club members at low rates.

When you join the club, you will be helped by one or more of the experienced club members, who will introduce you to members at a General meeting; at a Dry casting day, where training is available as covered in the Dry casting pages, and arrange for a time to talk to you about any aspect of fishing you would like some help with, in particular to set you up to go on a fishing field day.

Come to some Club events as a visitor, to one of our monthly general meetings, dry casting mornings or fishing trips. Read more
