FLy fishing in Orange, NSW SINCE 1932

Orange Trout Acclimatisation Society Inc.


Our History, OUR PASSION.

The Orange Trout Acclimatisation Society (OTAS) has been active in and around Orange NSW since 1932, with the organisation originally formed to promote the interests of local anglers. Over 80 years have passed since the inception of the Society and even though significant advancements in fly fishing have been made in this time, the core values of the Society remain the same.

There is still a strong focus on promoting the art of fly fishing in the region and ensuring the maintenance of a healthy local fishery. Most importantly, the Society still fosters an environment of sharing knowledge, experiences and learnings amongst its members.

The Society holds a number of "learn to fly cast" mornings for new and existing members and is always open to prospective members or those that just want to give it a go. We also hold "fly tying" afternoons for those who have an interest in learning how to tie their own flies.

We always welcome new members who share our interests. Feel free to contact us or pop in and join one of our monthly socials held at the Gladstone Hotel on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
