Canberra Anglers Association

The Canberra Anglers Association is a small, intimate fishing club known for their friendly and helpful nature. It has a long history dating back to immediately after World War 2 and has as its formal objects:

    • -the protection of trout and other fish;
    • -the care of trout streams and other waters;
    • -the encouragement of angling in all its best aspects;
    • -the promotion of social intercourse amongst anglers including the conduct of competitions;
    • -the encouragement of juniors to learn sportsmanship and watercraft through angling.

Meetings are held monthly (except for December and January) on the second Wednesday of the month starting 7:30pm at the Weston Club near Cooleman Court Shopping Centre in Weston. Meetings generally seek to avoid administration and focus on a guest speaker. (In December a meeting is held, but is typically a barbeque held at a local fishing spot).

Fishing events are generally held monthly except for the Christmas break and the depths of winter. Other events such as fly tying instruction are held frequently. Of particular interest is the annual Fly Casting training days held each year on the Sunday of the three weekends preceding the opening of trout fishing in streams (October Long Weekend). They are held on the lawns near old Parliament House. The final Sunday will normally held on stocked trout waters to try the skills on the water.
