Catch a bite

The Tweed is not only a stunning river, but also one of the most productive salmon rivers in Europe. In Autumn, the river and its tributaries can be stuffed full of salmon as the main run comes in from September onwards. The combination of potentially great sport and the Borders in full autumnal colour is a pretty potent mix.  In addition to wild Atlantic salmon, double figure sea trout are caught every season, whilst the brown trout fishing can be exceptional with fish in the 4-5lb bracket, and bigger possible. There are also specimen grayling with fish over 3lb present and the occasional even bigger lady of the stream, which you can fish for throughout the winter.

Wether you are a total beginner looking to try fly fishing or a lapsed fisherman looking to get back into the sport Hardy Academy member, Fin Wilson, is available to give you some professional guidance and casting instruction and will provide you everything you need for a successful day's catch. All your permit and equipment are included so you don't need to bring anything but yourself. Want to make a day of it with a larger party? No problem, big groups can be accommodated and all ages and abilities are welcome. So cast your rod and soak in the relaxing atmosphere that runs through the river. There are a number of different fishing packages available depending on your requirements. Fin Wilson at FishWild can advise you on the perfect package for you.

The Tontine has been welcoming fishermen to the middle and upper Tweed for many years.  In addition to our friendly service and can-do attitude we offer delicious food, packed lunches, secure storage, a drying room, freezer facilities and private parking for our guests.
