Book Advert

“Soft Winds and Sudden Squalls” is not a “how to” about trout fishing in Orkney. Far from it. The book is much more a history of the first 100 years of the Association, and it highlights all the key players, the highs and lows, controversies, achievements and failures that featured over the period. Off course the publication will be of great interest to the angling community, both local and visitor. Indeed, for many long term visitors to Orkney it will be a trip down memory lane. It is packed full of facts about historic fish catches, competition results, cups and their donators and the top anglers of their time. However the bulk of the book is about the people who influenced the OTFA over the last 100 years. The stalwarts and the unsung heroes, many still alive and kicking but even more now casting their lines in the big loch in the sky. Relatives, friends and fishing pals will all enjoy reading about the “weel kent” characters, too many to mention here but they’re all included in the book, which is laced with photographs which date back to the inaugural date, 1905.
