Sport fishing associations

The Danish sport fishing associations do tremendous volunteer work in order to provide the members with ample opportunity to engage in sport fishing and gain access to private fishing waters.

Sport fishing associations

A sport fishing association is a place where peers meet and share fishing stories. Through many years of work, many associations also have access to private fishing waters that the association rents. This way you get to fish in fishing waters that are not covered by the national fishing license. Many associations arrange talks, trips, and even travels, so there are many good experiences with other anglers in store by joining an association. Several associations also have a junior division that offers you or your kids a good start to life as an angler.

Benefits of an association

Membership of an association has many benefits, but most appealing is the opportunity of gaining access to exciting fishing waters across all of Denmark. You also get the opportunity to share your passion and experiences with others and thus to expand your network.
