Kingfisher Sport Fishing Association MALTA
Fishing is a growing sport amongst all age groups in Malta and the KSFA committee strives hard to promote angling as a sport, keeping fish conservation in mind at all times. We are also members in the Kunsill Malti Ghall-Isports.
During the late 1980's a group of keen anglers started meeting up to fish together and from there the idea of organising fishing competitions between themselves started. In 1990 Steve Johnston Established Officialy Kingfisher Sport Fishing Association thus becoming the first Sports Fishing Club in Malta. Till this day although Steve is now living in Canada he still involves himself and keeps contact with the Club's members.
Our motto is in fact Catch and Release.
Apart from numerous local events and bi monthly angling competitions we also paticipated for the very first international experience as 11 top Maltese anglers who have placed in top positions in the National Federation League and competed against other countries in the 3rd edition of the Sport World Fishing Championships held in Tuscany in August 2011.
In 2013 another two Maltese teams participated in Cadiz 2013 European Championships and we are now preparing ourselves for Italy 2014 which will be held in San Benedetto Del Tronto coming May 2014

in a fishing tournament against the Sicilian federation and place first to fourth on the podium.
As an organisation we also offer assistance to young anglers who show an interest in the club, by means of having several organised matches for them to be trained in sport angling.
We even have a childrens fishing team and all year tournament.
We have had the opportunity to be invited to various sports programs on television after organising tournaments or marathons for philanthropic organisations such as Inspire amongst others.
We were the first to help build one of the multi sensory rooms developed at the complex in MScala, not only financially through donations, but also by our members voluntarily donating them professional help.
