Fishing regulations

When booking fishing you need to be aware of what you can and cannot do when you fish. There are legal requirements, conservation codes, individual beat rules and booking agency conditions that all need to be taken into account. These generally fall into three main categories:

River Tweed conditions

Tweed 2019 Fishing codes can be found here

Tweed Spring Salmon Code 2019

Tweed Angling Code for Salmon & Sea-trout 2019

Beat conditions

Individual owners will also have their own individual conditions, such as the hours that fishing is allowed on that beat, what gillies are provided (if any) and what fishing methods you can use.

FishPal booking conditions

This site uses the FishPal booking engine, so if you use our online booking system, or our call centre on 01573 470612, you need to agree to FishPal's booking conditions.

You will be given another opportunity to read all these conditions before doing any online booking, where you have to indicate your agreement to them. They will also be included in the joining instructions you are given when your booking has been completed.
