Situated in the picturesque Scottish Borders, the river Tweed is perhaps better known as a salmon river, but it also contains good stocks of wild brown trout and grayling. From it’s source at Tweed’s Well in Peeblesshire it flows East to Berwick upon Tweed where it enters the North Sea. It is around 97 miles in length and is fed by several tributaries which include the Lyne Water, Gala Water, River Ettrick, River Leader, River Teviot, Till and Whiteadder. The Tweed and its tributaries are no longer stocked with brown trout so you know that your quarry is truly wild and there can be little more satisfying moments in fishing than when a truly wild fish takes your fly. This is what the river Tweed fishing experience is all about.

Fishing the Tweed can be daunting, but your fishing guide will make sure your chances of catching are maximised. Local knowledge and choosing the right flies and methods are of paramount importance to a successful day on the river.

The brown trout season runs from 15th March to 6th October , and although there is no closed season for grayling it's best not to fish for them from mid March until June to allow them to spawn then recover. Anyone who braves the Winter months can be rewarded with fantastic grayling fishing on the  Tweed as they will feed well even in cold weather.

Why not come and give this fantastic and relaxing sport a try? If you'd like to fish the Tweed or one of it's tributaries please go to the "contact us" page and we can discuss your requirements. Anglers of all abilities catered for and all tackle supplied if required.
