OTFA annual dinner and presentation of prizes 2019

Orkney Trout Fishing Association anglers and their partners gathered at the Merkister Hotel on Saturday night to celebrate the end of another successful season on the Orkney lochs.
The evening began with dinner, which, as ever, was  of the highest standard and thoroughly enjoyed by all, thanks to Lorna, Jackie and their hard working staff at the Merkister.
The presentation was well organised by Alan Craigie and Brian Thomas, with Elma McDonald doing a grand job in presenting the trophies.
The trophies were well spread across the membership this year, with Jack Leslie taking the lions share in the Brodgar League, and Ken Kennedy the Fly Fisherman of the year trophy. Other notable winners were Sasha Miller winning the Ladies Cup and Jack and Jacqueline Leslie winning the Mixed Pairs.
Following the presentation, we had the draw for the raffle, and as always, it was compered in their own inimitable style by John Munson and Jim Adams. The proceeds of the raffle will go to support SMAH, Scottish Mental Awareness. Everyone then retired to the bar, where most of the fish caught this season were caught once again, only bigger.
