The Australian Fishing Trade AssociationDSC 0167

The Australian Fishing Trade Association (AFTA) was formed in the early 1980s by independent wholesalers/distributors and manufacturers of fishing tackle and associated products in Australia.

AFTA is an Australian trade association dedicating itself to the promotion of public angling and of its members. AFTA members are often the first point of contact for anglers wanting local information, rules and regulations, and also promote sustainable angling and public education.

The annual trade show is available to Australian registered Tackle Marine & Outdoor traders who wish to promote their range to the national retail sector. The retail visitors then go on to provide these useful angling tools and advice to the public, enhancing Marine experiences of Australian anglers and their families.

Our wholesale members also benefit the trade by inviting their business contacts to the Trade Show.

The AFTA Trade Show is not a general public or international show, and this continues to work well for the industry.
