The Malloch Trophy, sponsored by FishPal, is the most prestigious Salmon trophy in Europe.

It is awarded annually to the captor of the best salmon caught in Scotland on a fly and safely returned to the water.

Its main aim is to promote the conservation of salmon through catch and release on Scottish rivers.

Trophy rules

In brief, the fish must be:

• Bona fide wild Atlantic Salmon

• Caught on the fly and returned safely to the water.

• Properly weighed and/or measured.

• Independently witnessed.

• Reported on time by valid entry form

Recent winners of the Malloch Trophy have included a 35lb salmon from the Tay and a 50lb salmon from the Tweed!

FishPal Junior Award

A new junior Award for 2015 was announced in March 2015 by FishPal's CEO, Mark Cockburn, and Tay Foundation Chairman John Wood.

The new FishPal Junior Award hopes to encourage more young people to try salmon fishing in Scotland and increase participation of existing junior anglers.

It is open to all juniors aged 18 years or under, on the 31st December of that year, who catch and release an Atlantic Salmon on a Scottish river using any legal method.  Conal Sinclair from Newton Stewart was one of the Junior Malloch Trophy winners in 2015!
