Alexander Grant Memorial Competition

Congratulations to Donna O’Sullivan for securing first place (and a very “Handsome” Chapman Troutbeck!) during the women’s division at the Alexander Grant Memorial Competition, Inverness, Scotland.

Donna is currently LTS Flyfishing’s USA Pro-staff and Distributor, and owner of Fish On! Sports from Daly City, CA, USA. She started spey competition casting in 2004, winning the Spey-O-Rama women’s division in 2004, 2005, and 2015. Donna also competed at the World Championship of Fly Casting in Norway in 2010, 2012 and 2014 securing a number of titles across the board:

  • Gold medalist for the 16ft spey distance competition in 2010.
  • Silver medalist for 16ft spey distance in 2012.
  • Silver medalist for 15ft and 16ft spey distance and salmon distance competitions in 2014
  • Donna also won the 2-hand salmon distance competion at the 2013 American Casting Association Nationals.

Here is what Donna had to say about her most recent prizing winnings with Chapman…

“I would like to thank John Chapman, Ltd, one of the sponsors of the Alexander Grant Memorial Competition, for the top quality and handsome Troutbeck 16 bag that I received for winning the women’s division.

It will definitely be put to good use wherever I go fishing, thank you so much for this Chapman bag!”
