4.14 miles single bank, 22 named pools
Anglers attention is specifically drawn to Condition 2 of the Tillmouth Fishings booking conditions.
The Tillmouth fishings extend for 4.14 miles of single, English bank, downstream from Coldstream Bridge and has 22 named pools which hold fish throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn seasons. The Beat extends through an area of outstanding natural beauty and is sheltered by a series of spectacular river cliffs and wooded banks which provide a haven for wildlife. Otters, kingfishers and peregrines are a common sight by visiting anglers.
For the fisherman the beat offers privacy and seclusion. There is easy access to most pools by vehicle and the riverside paths stretch for the full 4.14 miles of the Beat.
Tillmouth enjoys prolific runs of hard fighting fresh salmon throughout the Tweed's ten-month season and its 22 main holding pools offer both good high and low water fishing. Depending upon river levels, most of the pools offer easy wading from accessible banks. For boat fishing Tillmouth has 12 boats spread between all its main pools.
The beat employs four full time boatmen.
From the 2012 season, Tillmouth will be fished as a 6 rod beat throughout the year. From August to October the beat will be fished by the owners. Very occassionally some rods may become available during this period.
During the season, if the 6th rod is not paid for by midday the previous day a boatman for this 6th rod is not guaranteed (however all reasonable endeavours to provide a boatman will be made).
There is a good main hut situated at the Wellington Pool with mown grass area and barbecue.
The owners of Tillmouth are supporters of the Tweed Angling Code and conservation measures and tenants will be encouraged to follow these guidelines.
