The OTFA would like to wish all our members tight lines for 2022

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.
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.

Membership for 2022

MEMBERSHIP of the OTFA is the most active way for the individual angler to support the essential work of conservation and preservation of the trout fishing in Orkney. For a nominal sum of money, local and visiting anglers may use all the facilities of the Association and also ensure the future of some of the best wild trout fishing available.
