Where Legacy Meets the Line – Taupo Fishing Club Chronicles

Established in the early 1970s as the Taupo Fly Fishing Club, our journey began with passionate fly-fishermen gathering at the Lake Hotel. Officially formed in 1975, our early members, including notable figures in fishing literature, laid the foundation for a community centered around shared stories, Friday night camaraderie, and a love for trout fishing in the Taupo area.

In 1983, our dreams materialized with the completion of our dedicated club rooms on the AC reserve. The inauguration coincided with a historic moment in New Zealand’s fishing history—the 100th anniversary of the introduction of Rainbow trout. Embracing a broader spectrum of fishing interests, we evolved into the Taupo Fishing Club in 1990.
