History of the Club

Keysborough Angling Club Inc. (Registration No.

A 8168) was established in 1978 and even after this time, we have an active membership who enjoy their fishing and also social activities. A membership includes member, spouse/partner and children up to 16 years of age.   In the early days, a group of young men who were very keen anglers met on a Friday night for a few social drinks.  These get togethers then lead to the birth of our angling club.   Initially meetings were held at the homes of some of these young chaps where the the first syllabus and constitution were constructed.  In a short time frame the meetings then moved to the Function Room at the Keysborough Hotel. 

Since the late 1980s we were extremely fortunate to enter into an ongoing lease agreement with the City of Kingston and we held our meetings at the Community Meeting Rooms which were located off Gladesville Boulevard, Patterson Lakes. From August 2013 our new home is at the Australasian Golf Club, Fraser Avenue, Edithvale.  It is important to note that even now we still have four of the original foundation members involved in the club and are proud to identify 10 life members who are : 

 

 Terry Quirk  Harry Nangle  Paul Martin
 Ian Green  Rod Mulholland  Graeme Brennan
 Graham Simester  Rob Joynson  Helen Simester
 Dave Jacobsen    

 

Over many years members from Keysborough Angling Club have also assisted with :

  • Mates Day (Future Fish Foundation)
  • Social days for 'Kids with Cancer'
  • Social fishing days for under priviledged children
  • BBQ for the above
  • Scattering of ashes in the Bay
  • Artificial reefs in Port Phillip Bay

The club sincerely acknowledges all past and present members and their families and thanks them all for their contribution to making our club what it is today!
