Tuggeranong Vikings Fishing Club

Established in 1984, the Vikings Fishing Club (VFC) is a diverse and accepting fishing club which welcomes people from all walks of life. An affiliated club of the Vikings Group, the VFC is committed to welcoming members no matter what level their fishing skills are at. We encourage our membership to include partners and families with our junior membership getting stronger and stronger every year. Currently, membership is just shy of 180 members with many members being with the VFC for over 5 years – some have even been in the club for over 20 years!

The primary focus of the VFC is fishing. We offer our members a wide variety of fishing trips expanding across the year. Our trips consist of both fresh and salt water trips which include locations such as Jindabyne, Eucumbene, Mallacoota, Jervis Bay and Bermagui  (just to name a few!).

Our trips cater to many skills sets and enable modes of fishing such as beach, estuary, deep sea, game, lake fishing and more.

In addition to these trips, the VFC undertakes a variety of fundraising events for the benefit of VFC members. From BBQ’s to raffles, money raised goes back to supporting the VFC, its sponsors and its members.
