Australian Anglers Association, (WA Division) Inc.
Clubs Affiliated with AAA WA - Quinns Rocks Fishing Club.
The Quinns Rocks Fishing Club Inc, a family orientated club currently operating from Gumblossom Community Hall, Tapping Way, Quinns Rocks. Club activities are strongly biased to family social and sporting events. We endeavour to encourage parents and their children to practise conservation of fish stocks, taking only what are necessary for a reasonable feed and is termed "Fishing for the Future".
The club is open on a Friday from 4.30pm to 8.30pm. We have a very strong ethos in respect to the responsible service and consumption of alcohol and adherence to correct social behaviours. Our members have the belief it is better to teach children correct behaviour in respect to alcohol by the best role models they can have - their parents and friends.
Social functions and fund raising events also form a large part of the clubs annual agenda, managed by an active committee and members. Events such as Easter and Xmas raffles, Champagne breakfasts, cocktail nights, trophy nights, family fishing days, visitors competitions, theme nights and a Xmas party for the kids and adults alike.
We hold regular monthly competitions, usually on the third Sunday. The competitions are run along recognised safety guidelines with participant safety paramount. All competitions are species based which means that only one each of certain species of fish are eligible for weighing in at the end of the day. This encourages anglers to not only be versatile in seeking out the various habitats and bait required to successfully compete, but to be mindful of the requirements to leave some fish for another day.
Whilst land based angling is not usually included in our activities, there is no exclusion for members wanting to fish competitions from the land base. Indeed a number of our members enjoy the sport of fly-fishing and undertake expeditions in pursuit of trout and other freshwater fish. Ownership of a boat is not necessary to be a member of our club, although most members have a vessel or access to one.
The club undertakes at least one wilderness safari per year and have travelled to Steep Point and Nanga Bay in the past, usually during school holidays.These safaris are not just holiday jaunts, but are used as practical education examples in bush survival, safe driving and respect for the environment. On some occasions children have been required to complete project papers as part of an extra curricular activity.
Additionally each year a "long weekend" chartered boat trip to the Abrolhos Islands is undertaken by members which is very popular and satisfying in terms of the camaraderie enjoyed as well as fishing pristine waters with experienced operators.
From time to time we conduct fishing clinics for parents and juniors, but again we encourage parents to be present with their children. Legal duty of care provisions prevents us from taking unaccompanied children out to sea on vessels, or training sessions without adequate parental supervision.
Visitors are welcome both in the club and in our competitions.
