Kirbister is full of free rising trout, which tend to be of a smaller average size than most other Orkney lochs. This could be likened more to a highland hill loch and the successful flies would certainly compound this fact with big, bushy, surface disturbing patterns being the order of the day.
It is regarded as a splendid loch for those new to the sport and is very popular with junior anglers due to the fact that the trout are so responsive in even the most unsuitable conditions. Wading is easy and large baskets can be taken from the first day of the season to the last.
Membership of the OTFA is the most active way for the individual angler to support the essential work of conservation and preservation of the trout fishing in Orkney.
For a nominal sum of money, local and visiting anglers may use all the facilities of the association and also ensure the future of some of the best wild trout fishing available.
