The Longford Fishing Club is amongst the oldest standing fishing clubs in Tasmania. We have a proud tradition and diverse members from the serious fly fisherman to casual boaties to weekend river and lake shore fishers all hoping to catch that allusive sports fish. Members vary in age from toddlers to seniors and enjoy the social aspect and comradery of the club's involvement in event competitions or the many community events to which we are involved with. Whatever you are looking for in a recreational fishing club, you are sure to find it with the Longford Fishing Club. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at the Green Shed in the Longford Show Grounds at 7:30pm. All welcome to come along and be part of a great local club

Ron Denne open waters comp (Highland Lakes)
The Longford Fishing Club is organising the Ron Denne open waters comp (Highland Lakes) for the club members on 14th and 15th November, 2020 camping at Pump House Bay, Arthurs Lake. As it is a two day camping and fishing event so make sure members put their name to be drawn in the next club meeting on 3rd November in-order to stay in the Club Caravan otherwise members have to setup the camp in the campsite. It is a good social camping and fishing weekend for the new members as well as the old members as they get to know each other.
Members can fish in any Highland Lakes (including Great lake, Arthurs Lake, Woods lake and many more) and win prize based on the weight of the Fish.
Competition starts daylight on 14th November and ends at 12:00 pm on 15th November.
