Welcome to the Scottish Ladies Fly Fishing Website
The aim of the Ladies Fly Fishing Association, is to encourage lady anglers to participate in fishing events, to join the various ladies clubs and in general promote ladies angling. Each year the Association helps to fund a team to compete in the Ladies International, against teams from England, Ireland and Wales.
The Ladies Association was formed in 1990 by Ian Wilson and the late Kevin Burns. The initial team was made up of 6 Ladies from St Serfs angling club and 6 Ladies from the Montana Ladies angling club. The same year, the Ladies came under the auspices of SANA, who is the governing body for the sport of game fishing in Scotland. This was necessary to allow the Ladies to compete in International events.
The following year in 1991, the Scottish Ladies Championship was organised and the event was held on Loch Leven. It was the qualifiers from this match who went forward to fish at Rutland and came back with the first of many Gold Medals.
The group picture below was taken at Llyn Brenig in Wales in 1990, where the Scottish Ladies first took part in a friendly competition. The event saw competitors from Wales, England and Scotland, but it was not until the following year that Ireland joined the competition.
