The first edition of the KHACC monthly magazine was printed in December 1966 and was called The Journal.
 
Taken from the front cover of the first edition.
“OUR FIRST EDITION”
 
It is with the greatest pleasure that I am able to announce that the Ku-ring-Gai Hornsby Angling and Casting Club has achieved what I believe is a significant advance in its development, in being able to place before its members, a Club Journal.
We have been told by others that our Club is regarded as being one of the fastest growing angling organisations in the State, and by reason of the support which has been given to our regular weekly meetings and fishing outings, I consider that we are entitled to believe that this club is fulfilling a most worthy purpose within the community.
On behalf of the Executive Committee, I wish to thank members and our many friends outside the club, for the support and interest which they have given freely in numerous ways, and to express the belief that the initiation of a Journal (in the hands of the enthusiastic and capable Journal Sub-Committee), will be one of the most important of the new features which it is intended to introduce to the Club, directed towards retaining and fostering the interest of existing members and enlisting the new members which a progressive club must have.
As this Journal will reach all members, I should like to take the opportunity of extending to them the Seasons Greetings and to express the hope that the forthcoming year will bring happiness, prosperity and good fishing.
JOHN BROWN  PRESIDENT  5.12.1966
 
A competition was opened to all members and their friends to come up with a name for the magazine. There was a prize offered to the value of five guineas ($10.50) for the best submission suitable. Out of the 320 entries the competition was won by Anne Perry and the first edition as Fish ’n Fun was published in April 1967.
 
The magazine consists of articles submitted by members relating to outings, fishing tips, and points of interest to the fishing community as well as photos of catches and social gatherings. Progressive point scores and heaviest of species details are also listed.
