The OTFA would like to wish all our members tight lines for 2019

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.

David H. Kemp


Members were saddened to hear that David H. Kemp, Kolbein, Willowburn Road, Kirkwall passed
away on 26 th July. Dave was a stalwart member of the OTFA . He fished for Orkney in Inter-county
matches against Shetland from 1968 to 1978 and served as President from 1983 to 1985. He always
had encouraging words of advice for young anglers new to the sport of competitive fly fishing. He
was passionate about the hatchery in particular and responsible for stocking many of Orkney's
superb trout lochs. Dave will now join up again with his former boat partner George Donaldson to
fish the big loch in the sky. No doubt his Grey Monkey will get a swim up there and tight lines will
 Dave will be sorely missed.
