We enjoy both fresh and saltwater fishing, and organise half day, day and overnight(s) trips to Kaikoura, Akaroa, Moeraki, Lake Coleridge and Lake Brunner.

A yearly competition is held with the Canterbury Clubs, along with a Mid-Winter Brass Monkey competition. The High Country opening at Lake Coleridge in November.

Clubs New Zealand South Island trout competition is held yearly at various locations around the South Island in March. Little fishing takes place in the winter, although occasional non-fishing trips are organised.

If you know of another place where the fish are willing to be caught, join the section and let the boys know. They would more than welcome the opportunity to organise a trip to your location.

We don’t have competitions, but we’re a social group and have a lot of fun venturing around Christchurch and country areas at a reasonable cost.

We have occasional overseas trips and enjoy going on mystery bus tours.
We try to have a trip approx every 6 weeks or so, and the trips are well patronised. A great way to meet and get to know people
