News by Month



Well, 2017 seems to have flown by!  For the Federation it has again been an extremely challenging and demanding year in which events outside our control have conspired to make achieving the targets we set in our Annual Business Plan even more challenging than normal.  Pressure on public finances, the snap UK General Election and focus on BREXIT have all taken their toll and seen the focus of many of our partnerts shift away from issues that we see as key to promoting and protecting our sport in Scotland.  We have again often found ourselves reacting to very short timelines, simultaneously dealing with several highly important pieces of work.  Despite the challenges, we have managed to achieve many of the targets that we set ourselves, albeit mainly those that sit within our control, but there is always far more that we could and, if we had the time and resources, should be doing.

Annual Report and Christmas Message from the Chairman

The Report is quite long but I would encourage you all to take a little time to read it in full as I believe it contains some important information.  It aims to make you aware of not only what we have achieved this year, but what we plan to achieve and also ensure that you are aware of the challenges that we continue to face and what we are doing to try to overcome them.

In mid February 2018 we will be publishing our draft Annual Business Plan for consultation with clubs and individual members.  If we as your Governing Body are to continue to promote, protect and deliver the sport that you want to participate in, we need your input.  I would therefore again urge you to take some time to read it and let us now if you feel that we have missed anything or got our priorities wrong.  We would love to hear from you.

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and Tight Lines for 2018.

Gus Brindle, Chairman
