Joining EFSA (Scotland) is easy and an application form in Adobe format can be downloaded by right clicking with your mouse here. Alternatively you can contact our Secretary or Treasurer who will arrange to have the form sent on to you.
At present full membership is priced at £20 with over 65 receiving a 50% discount and Juniors under 18s at £8 per year. If you are joining for the first time there is a £2 administration fee to cover the initial membership package. Life Membership is available for a one off payment of £200.
Members will receive the excellent EFSA yearbook which has a wealth of information on fishing in Europe and around the world. This publication is worth the subscription fee on it’s own!
The Yearbook has details of competitions around Europe which are open to EFSA members, the full European line class record list including the new classes for fly fishing as well as photographs and details of members catches at home and abroad.
Members are also entitled to fish in the annual Championships organised by EFSA including boat, shore line class and big game events and they are entitled to fish for their country at these competitions.
The Scottish section also hold competitions during the year for their members and details of this year’s event can be found on the competition pages.
One of the best parts about joining EFSA (Scotland) is the craic among the members - mongos and diddymen abound!!! The slagging and humour (check out some of the pictures from the recent Irish trip) are some of the reasons for the continued growth in membership of this vibrant Section of the Federation
Members are also entitled to access the Section tackle shop which has many excellent bargains and the angler can recoup the cost of the membership fee each year.
Another benefit of membership are the monthly awards for best specimen and heaviest fish. Each month £10 is available for the heaviest fish caught and the fish which has the highest percentage of the Scottish record weight for that species. Some lucky, skillful they would say, anglers manage to more than cover the cost of membership each year.
EFSA Scotland have an extensive list of trophies which are fish for each year in various competitions.
The Royal Bank of Scotland Quaich is awarded each year to the top Scottish angler at the European Boat Championships, as list of the past and present winners is available here together with all of the National Trophies and the previous winners.
A full list of the current trophy winners is available here.
