The AFTA Hall of Fame

~ A celebration of our fishing community ~

The Australian Fishing Trade Association recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the recreational fishing industry over the years. In 2014, we introduced the AFTA Hall of Fame, highlighting some of the great achievers in our industry. AFTA would like to congratulate all our Hall of Fame nominees and entrants, their contribution to our industry is enormously appreciated.
