Borders' fishing guru launches his first book

Eoin Fairgrieve, now reaching the echelons of international fame in the fishing world, has published My First Trout, a beautifully illustrated and clearly written trout fishing book for children.

This takes the young fisher through the basics from all-important water safety to the lifecycle of a trout, anatomy of the fish, what they eat and how to tie a fly. The environmental implications of trout fishing and the code of conduct are also are highlighted and there's a fishing log just waiting for that first catch.

If you're coming to fish on the Tweed you'll be asked to sign a statement declaring that you haven't fished abroad in the last week. This is a serious precautionary measure to lessen the chance of the deadly virus Gyrodactylus salaris (Gs) which is destroying the freshwater fishing industry in Norway.
If you have been fishing abroad in the previous week you will be asked to disinfect your gear.
