The OTFA would like to wish all our members tight lines for 2016

The OTFA is a non-profit making voluntary body dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of game fishing throughout the Orkney Islands. At a time when natural habitats are under continual threat and pressure, the continuation of
the OTFA's work is of paramount importance to both local and visiting angler to ensure that the rich heritage of Orkney trout fishing has a future as bright as it's past.
Harray Loch Fishing The work of the Association in the furtherance of this aim includes:
o The operation of a hatchery which using local stock provides for many of Orkney's less productive aters.
o The provision of riparian sites with access and boat launching facilities on the main trout fishing lochs. Most of these sites also provide shelter, piers, car parking and toilet amenities.
o Maintaining a watching brief over all the trout fishing lochs in the county, supporting all efforts that benefit our sport and opposing all measures which are a direct threat to the trout fishing

OTFA Dinner and Presentation of Trophies 2015

Members, partners and friends of the OTFA gathered at the Merkister Hotel last Saturday night for their annual doo. Following a spectacular meal, Competitions Convenor Alan Craigie gave a resume of the seasons competition programme with the trophies being presented by President Brian Thomas’s partner, Maureen. The culmination being the presentation of Fly And Bait Fisherman of the Year. Top angler in the Fly section, for an amazing 13th time was Norman Irvine, with, in the Bait section, Jack Leslie reached an equally impressive milestone, lifting the trophy for the 10th consecutive year.
The proceeds of the raffle on the night, £136, were donated to a very deserving cause, the Friends of the Neuro Ward,ARI. Thanks to John Munson and Billy Thomson for organising the raffle. The anglers then retired to the bar where many fish were caught and drams enjoyed. Many thanks to Suzanne Lee for taking the photograph
