    All members are hereby invited to attend and take an active part in this meeting to ensure that the decision-making process is fair and representative of majority of the Members of the Association.

    This is also a forum for members to speak openly about any concerns regarding the ZSFA and voice their interests in the future of the ZSFA by providing ideas on improvements to ensure the continued success of the Association. (Raised in the AOB Forum).

    Dear All, 

    As an angler you are required to have a fishing license. These are obtained from the blue building at fisheries opposite Munda Wanga in Chilanga. You need to go to the office and request for a fishing license, K500 for the year or K85 for the month. You will be given a deposit slip (no swipe facilities currently available) which you take to the bank located at the service station next to Lafarge and deposit the money then go back to the fisheries office and complete the application. They will ask to see your ID (NRC is best otherwise you might get charged foreigner rates).

    Dear Members,

    As of end of last year, the Lusaka Angling Centre no longer has a physical store and have opted to go Virtual with a collection point from Longacres, Lusaka.

    This means that going forward, all ZSFA Members must be registered on the Members' Website platform ( and payments can only be made either via Bank Transfer or Direct Deposit into the ZSFA Bank Account. No Cash Payments will be accepted.

    Receipts and Member Cards will be generated and made available online on your respective member pages; as we, as a Committee have decided to Go Environmentally Friendly and Paperless. 

    We therefore urge ALL Members to ensure that the Membership subscription is fully paid up prior to the respective Competitions.

    All Competition organisers will have to confirm in advance if participants are active paid up members, as a pre-requisite to participate in the affiliated competitions.

    We thank everyone who have made their payments so far, and promise we will be updating your Membership profiles in the coming week and will send confirmations via email to you all soonest. We appreciate your patience.

    Thank You!

    Dear Members,

    As of December 1, 2019, the Zambian Government has banned fishing activities in all water bodies across Zambia except Lake Kariba and Lake Tanganyika.

    The Ban will be lifted on February 29, 2020.

    Furthermore, the Minister of Livestock and Fisheries, Nkandu Luo has also indicated that the Government would on January 1, 2020 also effect a ban on Lake Kariba and Tanganyika after a Statutory Instrument (SI) to that effect has been put in place. 

    The Minister says her Ministry Team will embark on sporadic inspections on all checkpoints and water bodies to ensure that no one abrogates the LAW.

    We urge all our members to take note of the ban and comply accordingly.

    Thank you.

    President, ZSFA Executive Committee, 2019

    The ZSFA is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday, 16th March 2019 at CHRISMAR HOTEL.

    All members are invited to attend and to take an active part in discussion to ensure that the decision-making process is fair and representative of the whole Association. It is an opportunity for members to voice their interests in the future of the ZSFA.

    It is also an opportunity to recruit ‘new blood’ onto the Committee. The ZSFA needs fresh new faces on the Committee with fresh new ideas to ensure the continued success of the Association.

    All members are entitled to be Committee members and need just one other member to nominate them. We therefore request, all nominations, made with the agreement of the candidate, be sent by email to or you can speak to any one of the committee members at the AGM.

    Dear Members,

    We are aware you that you may have experienced trouble with making payments directly into our Standard Chartered Account. 

    We have been experiencing some technical difficulties with our account and unfortunately have had little support from the Bank. 

    The Executive Committee has been working tirelessly behind the scenes for a number of weeks to get the technicalities resolved, until we had no choice but to make the decision to move our Account. We can now confirm we have done so with Stanbic Bank. 

    We kindly request that you re-confirm that your initial deposit to the Stanchart account was processed.If it was: please resend the proof. If it wasn't;  we kindly ask you to now process your payment through to the new account.

    We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

    Rest assured we are now back online and shall respond and confirm all your renewals as soon as we receive proof of your payments to the new account.
