The Club History

  • During 1886, there was a published monthly paper called the ‘Scots Angler’. During the latter months of that year, a letter to the paper suggested that it might be good for the angling community in Scotland for social clubs to be formed in the more populous centres. During 1898, a number of stalwart anglers decided to form the Scottish Trout Anglers’ Association and in the following year the Edinburgh Branch of the Association was formed. On 16th November 1899 its first meeting was held. This was the first meeting of the Trout Anglers’ Club, Edinburgh.The Club’s Rooms were originally situated in Rutland Street,
