Thundrbolt Fishing Club

Thunderbolt Fishing Club

Thunderbolt Fishing Club was established in 1976, and has recently celebrated their 40th year.
It is a family oriented group. We have men, women, junior and sub-junior categories.
We meet the 1st Tuesday night of each month at 7:30pm, at the Uralla Bowling Club.
Our AGM is 1st Tuesday in November (unless it’s Melbourne Cup Day)
We have fishing competitions against other local fishing clubs and are always looking for new clubs to fish against. Currently we fish against the following clubs:
St. Kilda from Armidale, Baitwasters from Uralla, and Walcha Club from Walcha.
We also have fishing outings amongst our own club. We have recently introduced Ocean Estuary fishing.
