Frequently asked questions on our association:
Who can become a member?
Everyone can join our club. Competitions and leagues are held around Malta in various location so practically one must have his own transport to attend in every venue.
What should I learn from the club?
Joining KSFA will not guarantee you become a top fisherman. We just focus on shore fishing and basically one will only be learning and improving on the sports aspect of fishing. One must keep in mind that fishing is very complex and by joining KSFA you are not learning the natural fishing art.
How much will it cost?
It will only cost around 15 euros to pay your yearly membership fee, around 20 euros to compete in the singles, doubles league and mullet league.
But as all other sports you need to have good tackle, good bait on the day which will end up as a good expense to compete in all matches.
How long has KSFA been going on?
Kingfisher Sport Fishing Association has been been there since the early 90's. Founded by Steve Johnston the club has grown and matured and today we can say we are the leaders in Sport Fishing organisation when we come to sport fishing on the island. Our anglers have always placed in top positions and also participated in various international tournaments abroad with successive results.
What is the club's main aim?
Our aim is to use our sports as a conservation to our future. In all matches the rule of Catch and Release is always practiced and our members are always taught how to care for the future of fish and marine conservation. Lately we also partnered with the University of Malta and in most matches our catches are being monitored and studied by students who attend the fishing leagues and gauge our catch.
When should one become member?
One can become member whenever he wants, but it is advisable that one should join prior to a league starts.
