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.

Marimo Moss Clean Up........

The OTFA sites committee would like to thank the hard working members who gave up their time on Tuesday evening to help clear up the problem of Marimo Moss which has gathered at the Harray site this year, we removed tons of the stuff and it is now ready for the JCB to remove. If needed we will be back some evening next week (watch this space) for further clean up and any help would be appreciated. Meantime if members could refrain from placing their boats on the clearance area until the problem has been solved.
