Founded in 1909 by a handful of passionate and far-sighted anglers in Meran, over the decades the Angling Club Merano has developed into a exclusive and traditional association of our beloved hometown.
The Angling Club Meran consists by statute of no more than fifty members. Since its foundation, the main purpose of the association has been to administrate its fishing waters in a far-sighted way. Our goals are to maintain and develop a natural and sustainable fishery, to promote a river's renaturation program and to motivate young people achieving these goals.
In our fisherman's house, the old and lovingly by members restored railway station of Töll, regular meetings take place. With these events we try to educate to respectful and sensitive fishing. Of course celebrations are also held in our fisherman's house.
In recent years fly fishing has become more and more relevant.
The indigenous marble trout and the grayling are specially promoted fish species by the Angling Club Meran.
Currently Kurt Tappeiner is the chairman of the association. He is supported by highly competent and experienced board members.
„Fly fishing is not a sport, because feeling with nature can not be a sport. Fly fishing is not a way of life. But it requires an attitude that is emphasized by the love and the knowledge of nature - only then the elegance and beauty of this passion become visible.“
