Renewing or joining our Club for the 2024-25 fishing season will be more special than most, as we're celebrating 90 years since we came into existence. It promises to be one where we will reflect closely on our past and aim to remain strong well ino the future.

As a Victorian based game fishing Club, has there ever been a better time to game fish in Victorian waters. Be it good luck, good management or an uplift in fishing new areas and using new techniques, the opportunities to catch record breaking gamefish in our southern state waters seems to be so rich these days. We're definitely experiencing what many may one day recount as a period of the 'good old days', right now.

It's periods like this that retaining, holding and utilising your STC Membership to fish waters in our Club's home state is a must. The chance to catch a record breaking fish or one that lands your name on one of prestigious trophies is very real. It's also imporant to keep the history of this wonderful Club and it's past members alive .
