In 2014 the sponsorship of the trophy was taken over by FishPal. A quarterly competition with rod manufacturer Mackenzie
DTX was introduced and every entry to the FishPal Malloch Trophy now receives a fishing hat.
The 2016 winning river was the Tay and the event was held on opening day on the banks of Dunkeld Fishing. Scottish Environment minister Dr. Aileen McLeod presented this years winner with his award. See pictures from the day.
In 2015 FishPal launched a Junior Award to increase participation among younger anglers. The top four junior anglers who catch and release a salmon on a Scottish river, using any legal method, won a day to remember with World Spey Casting Champion Scott Mackenzie on FishPonds beat, River Tay, on Monday 15th August 2016.
