Other fishing in the Borders

Tweed's fame as a salmon river has meant that it has often been ignored for its other types of fishing. This is quite wrong, as both its brown trout and sea trout fishing are excellent and too often underestimated.

Permit policies differ from club to club, but generally they offer daily, weekly and season tickets.

Tickets are available here on-line too from a number of Trout Clubs.
