Fishing

The Tweed is world-renowned for its salmon fishing, and deservedly so, but the sea trout, wild brown trout and grayling found in this Borders gem are just as worthy of attention.  The Tontine hotel, situated in the heart of Peebles, has been welcoming fishermen to the middle and upper Tweed for many years.  We cater for large or small fishing groups, and all ages and abilities are welcome!

In addition to our friendly service, can-do attitude, delicious food & comfortable bedrooms we can arrange fishing permits and guides/instructor and the following:

  • packed lunches
  • space to store rods
  • a drying room
  • freezer facilities
  • free WiFi
  • private parking

Salmon Fishing

From £40 per day permit

We have Salmon fishing day permits for the Peebles Salmon Anglers beat which extends from HayLodge Park in Peebles up to Manor bridge.  These day permits are only available to residents of the hotel.

Check out FishTweed for other Salmon beats on the Tweed.

Pike Fishing

We have some of the best Pike fishing in the UK available on our doorstep.  Please contact us to organise a guided pike fishing day on a private loch just a short drive from Peebles.  This is a truly memorable experience not to be missed and all rods, reels, terminal tackle and life jackets are supplied.

Trout & Grayling Fishing

The trout and sea trout season runs from April to the end of September. Some very large wild trout are present in the Tweed with fish in the 3-4lb bracket caught each year, and the chance of 5lb plus specimens.  As for the sea trout, fish into double figures (10lb plus) run the river each year.

World-class grayling fishing, almost always available but particularly popular in the depths of winter.
