Formed in 1881,the Otago Anglers Association is the oldest angling club in New Zealand, and possibly Australiasia. The aims and objects of the club are as spelt out in the rules - "the encouragement of the art of angling, the fostering of friendship, and emulation amongst anglers by means of fishing competitions and otherwise, and the obtaining of useful information regarding the various streams in the district".

Our main interest is in trout fishing, but our activities cover all types of angling from dangling a line from the wharf, to salmon fishing. We cater for all types of angler, from the complete novice to the expert, and new faces are always welcome. We have well appointed clubrooms, fitted with all the relevant facilities, and these are the focal point of the club, where we hold all of our weekly meetings, most of the weigh ins, barbecues and various other social functions.

In addition to the clubrooms, we own five fishing lodges, which are very popular, and are available to members and families at an extremely low rental. This can be on bunk only basis, or if privacy is required, lodges can be rented for exclusive use only.
