The OTFA would like to wish all our members tight lines for 2015
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
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.
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
