Well, here we are, the penultimate tweed report, only one week left of fishing until the end of the season! I was hoping this season would end with a bang (still one week to go I suppose) after the long awaited rain came (at last)! We went from desperation for rain, begging for some to come... to cursing those rain clouds that wouldn't stop pouring! So yes, you've guessed it... yet again, another flood week, though currently the river has dropped to a very fishable height and colour for this week. Reports of water clarity being perfect, which is always good to hear! We finally had our first frost of the year at the weekend, which will help bring the water temperature down, all in all the river is in excellent order, let's just hope there are some fresh fish around! Last week there were very few, if any, reports of sightings of fresh fish, not great having waited all season to see a true run of fish! We can only wish for the same start to next season as we had this year - with Junction catching ten on opening day! As always, looking forward to seeing our friends Fiskenbloggen (if you haven't seen their blog, go check it out!) from Sweden, who generally open the scoring sheet for Floors!!
The weather forecasting rain today (Monday), though I suspect due to the freezing temperatures outside, this could well turn to snow at some point! The rest of the week looks like decent conditions, mainly cloudy with sunny intervals with temperatures barely reaching 10 degrees, as well as some rain for Friday but as we all know, that is susceptible to change! Our weeks total for FishTweed came to 20, with Upper North Wark, Junction & Lower Pavilion all catching 12lb-er. One saving grace last week was South Wark that recorded 2 fish on Friday and 5 on Saturday, caught by Ron Irvin and fishing partner, huge well done to them! Ron is a regular Tweed fisher, as well as a worldwide fisher, having fished in such locations as Iceland, Russia and TDF! Upper North Wark managed 4 fish for Friday and Saturday too.
Regarding any advice that I have for you this week... Intermediate or wet2sinking lines would be suggested, as well as a red or black francis, or a red or black snaelda with feelers, both on 1" copper tubes, are worth a cast this week! Good luck and tight lines to those out on the water this week, and if anyone has any contributions about their season on Tweedside, or about this fishing season in general we'd love to hear them. As always, feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org , phone us on 01573 225306 or just pop into our shop for a chat! All the best til next week from Tim and the team at Tweedside Tackle!
