About the Association.

The Australian Anglers Association, Western Australian Division is an organisation that promotes club angling as a sport and recreation for everyone.
Club angling has something for everyone, no matter their age. The activities can be fishing from beaches, rocks, rock walls, reefs, jetties, estuary and river fishing, boat fishing, or can be drycasting or a whole range of social activities with people who also like fishing.
The Australian Anglers Association (WA Division) Inc., is an association of Western Australian angling clubs. It is commonly called "the AAA" or "the triple A".
The Association is managed by a Delegates Council, which is made up of Delegates from clubs affiliated with the Association.
The Association coordinates and organises State and National competitions for Estuary fishing Rock and Beach fishing Boat fishing and Drycasting which decide the Champion Angler of the Year and Champion Club of the Year.
The Association has prepared Marine Parks and fishing restrictions in Western Australia - a reference list of internet links about Marine Parks and areas where fishing is restricted in Western Australia, as a service from the Australian Anglers Association to help recreational fishermen and others to locate the latest information.
The Association maintains lists of all record fish captures made in Western Australia. Anyone, resident or visitor, who has caught a fish in WA waters is entitled to claim the capture as a record.
By becoming a club member you can have your say in the future of angling in Western Australia, and this say can be supported by a lot of other club members.
Probably the quickest and easiest way of becoming a proficient angler, is by joining an angling club.
Many club anglers are very experienced and amenable people, particularly if they can help a fellow angler. In club angling, members help one another by pooling their ideas and sharing their experiences.
By becoming a club angler you can join in the goodwill and fellowship of the angling community either as a leisure angler or as a competitive member.
Clubs combine or specialise in various types of angling activities including Beach and Rock, Estuary, Boat, Offshore, and Dry Casting.
Generally both families and individuals are welcome in all clubs. Competitions include events for individuals and teams, men, ladies, juniors, mini juniors and veterans.
For the competition angler, many clubs hold field days throughout the southern half of the state. There are fishing competitions at club, interclub, State and National levels. Reasonable prizes, trophies and the pleasure of being the winners can provide their own incentive.
For the casual angler who is not interested in competition, many clubs hold social events in conjunction with their angling activities, and turn a fishing trip into a pleasant social outing where the fish are a bonus.
