 Secretary:    Alan W. Gray.


Club Membership For 2017

As we approach the start of another new season anglers will be digging out their tackle in anticipation of the new challenges ahead. Dates will be getting churned out on the calendar for club outings and the beginning of a new competitive season.

Whether it is at national or international level the majority of anglers all belong to an angling club. Out on the angling circuit we are constantly being asked where and how join  a fishing club.

 There are several recognised clubs in and around the city area, all with their own merits.One such club is the Edinburgh Trout Anglers who have over 100 years of angling history.The club is well-established with fine premises based in central city place Edinburgh and is currently on the lookout for new members to join its ranks.

No matter the angling ability of each individual the club makes everyone welcome and has outings to both river and city.
