The Malloch Trophy
Savills has been proud to sponsor the most prestigious and historic trophy in the Scottish angling world, The Malloch Challenge Trophy, from 2009 until 2014.
Reinstated at the start of the 2009 fishing season after an absence of 10 years, the Malloch Trophy has regained its place as the premier Scottish angling trophy.
First awarded in 1979 (for a 43lb fish caught on the Tweed by Lady Burnett), the trophy is named after Perth-based manufacturer and retailer of fishing tackle, Mallochs of Perth. It is awarded for catching the heaviest salmon of the season on any Scottish river.
The Tay Foundation reinstated the trophy in 2009 and the last five years have seen winners on the rivers Tweed, Nith, Spey and Lochy. As part of the Tay Foundation's promotion of conservation, the fish must be caught on a fly and released alive back into the river.
The Winner has their name, the details of the river and size of fish engraved on The Malloch Trophy. The Trophy is displayed throughout the year at House of Bruar.
