Fishing on the Tweed

The River Tweed is one of supreme salmon fishing rivers in the world. You can enjoy the excitement of early spring fishing, relax a little with some summer sport or save up to join the fishermen who from all over the world as they try their hand at catching a 'big end' salmon.

If you're lucky enough to see one of the wonders of the world - a run of salmon leaping up river in unison - we promise you'll never forget it, and if you do catch one of these 'big enders' as you soak up the autumn beauty of the leaves (from citrus to burnt sienna to aubergine, don't get us started!) let us know - we want to help you brag about it!

Search FishTweed for local angling associations, local information and rod availability.

How to organise a day's fishing

All you have to do is to book the right to fish for the relevant number of rods (or fishers) and days on the beat of your choice. No other fishery licences are required so all you need to do is call the ghillie a few days before you fish (you will be given his number on booking), find out what tackle you will need, and then turn up at the right place at the right time.
