The Victorian Game Fishing Club is a family oriented fishing club with a vision to achieve an environment that will encourage present and future generations of anglers to value and appreciate the benefits of membership of a vibrant game fishing club.
The club was formed almost 40 years ago by a group of men who were keen to try there luck against pelagics that were strictly the domain of the professional angler. With basic equipment, ingenuity and determination they formed the great club we have today.
General meetings take place at the clubrooms, 186 Station St. Edithvale from 7:30pm on the 1st Wednesday of each month with the exception of January. All are welcome.
Dear fellow anglers,
2013 has come to an end and 2014 has well and truly arrived. I hope you all had a great holiday season and at least had some sort of break. I know of many people that had worked through only getting the “big” days off. Sign of the times I think. Seems we are trying to fit more and more into each day that we forget the important things...fishing!! I’m told there are more important things than fishing, not too sure about that! But it is a great escape from modern life which seems to carry with it a great deal of pressure and with pressure stress usually follows close behind. Fishing to me is a fantastic way to unwind, spend time with good friends and family and get away from it all, so next time you’re feeling stressed why not get a way and do what you love most!
A few people have been very busy behind the scenes organising the Evinrude BRP Victorian Gamefish Classic. This event will be another great one and for those that aren’t aware it will be held in an exciting new location. Westerport Angling Club at Hastings, home of Bass Strait GFC, will be tournament base over the weekend of the 15th and 16th February. This event is made possible with the help of the clubs fantastic sponsors. It’s not every day you can win Mako eyeware, Shimano fishing gear, Lonestar marine products and the list goes on! We even have a Simrad NSS12 and an Evinrude outboard motor just for entering! Please remember our great sponsors when making your next purchase and make sure you tell them that you are from the VGFC, not only is it great feedback but they might even look after you! Have a great 2014 and hope to see you on the water soon!
Tight lines and screaming ratchets.
