About NSWGFA

"New Big Game Angling Association Formed in New South Wales", proclaimed articles in the sporting press in July 1938. The reports continued, "an important development in big game angling affairs in New South Wales took place on June 22nd 1938, when, at a Conference of game fishing clubs convened by the New South Wales Rod Fishers' Society, a new body was formed to control and foster game fishing in that State. The name of the new organisation is the New South Wales Game Fishing Association (NSWGFA) and consists of delegates appointed by affiliated Clubs".

The popularity and growth of the sport from the early 1930's had been phenomenal, due in large part to the efforts of a number of pioneer anglers: Clive Firth, Reg Lyne, Errol Bullen, Theo Roughley, Les Winkworth, Sil Rohu, Gordon Allard, Les Brookes and Max Lawson being the leading figures. The visit to Australia by the famous US author and angler Zane Grey in 1936 had provided further impetus to the sport. Grey wrote glowingly of the fishing to be had at Bermagui, Batemans Bay and Sydney and his party's every success was widely publicised by his smooth , well- oiled publicity machine in the popular and sporting press.
