2020 AGM Competitions and Entertainment Report

AIRFLO SPRING INVITATIONAL COMPETITION 2019 – 18th/19th MAY

Success in the Anglian Airflo International final in 2018 secured the team of 6 an invite to this prestige competition fished over
2 days on Rutland waters.
Weather was mixed, match days were blessed with good fishing conditions and plenty of fish caught.
Although finishing down the leadership board it was a great experience for the team.
Congratulations and thanks to Gareth Jones of Airflo, Rutland water and their staff and to all who competed for a great event.

ANGLIAN WATER AIRFLO INTERNATIONAL SCOTTISH HEAT 2019

The Scottish heat was held on the Lake of Menteith on Thursday,
6th June with 10 teams competing. Unfortunately, OTFA did not qualify, but Malcolm Russell took the prize of an Airflo rod for the heaviest fish.

INTER-COUNTY – ORKNEY


Swannay was the venue for the 69th Inter-County match, which fished very well over the 2 days.
Top rod was John Munson with 42 fish for Orkney. Shetland caught 158 fish and Orkney 178.

COUNTY SHOW

Many thanks to all who worked at the show and sold raffle tickets,
also to Iain Chalmers for his chainsaw donation for the raffle.
Funds were down from last year, but might have been due to where our site was?
Thanks to Jolly's for smoking the fish. This year, 2020, there will be no stall at the show.

ANNUAL DINNER AND PRESENTATION OF TROPHIES

Orkney Trout Fishing Association anglers and their partners enjoyed a cracking meal at The Merkister Hotel, of the highest standard. Thanks to Jacquie, Lorna and their hard-working staff.
Trophies were well spread out amongst the members.
Ken Kennedy was OTFA Fly Fisherman of the Year with Jack Leslie taking most of the Brodgar League spoils.

Thanks also to Mrs Elma MacDonald for presenting the trophies.
Following the presentation, the usual raffle was held, done as usual by John Munson and Jim Adams.
Proceeds of the raffle went to SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health).
