The OTFA would like to wish all our members tight lines for 2018

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.
Harray Loch Fishing 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.

For the 2018 season anglers may now join/renew their OTFA subscription online.

The OTFA intends to remove any “untagged” old boats and redundant trailers etc from our sites in June this year.

If you are the owner of such items, please take them away before 31st May. Alternatively, in the case of boats, please ensure you obtain the relevant boat tag for 2018 and display before the end of May.
