With the season drifting out to sea on a probable 8ft wave its with mixed feelings we look back and for some its been a great time and fish caught for others its been hard going but over all we are in the middle when it was good it was good but when poor very poor no balance no guarantees mind you there never is .Thankyou to you all that came tried and made my job so enjoyable as a tweed Ghillie because with out you guys and girls i would be out a job . For fishing hard when it was testing and sitting in a nice warm fishing hut might have been favoured and for getting stuck in when others around were not quite as keen i am very lucky to have a hard core team or two and it just goes to show what we can do in a pretty poor Tweed season we manage to get a good score of 104 so far and i am very pleased with that .Top salmon caught by size was a fine 26lb salmon by Mr steven ferguson that was quite a change in that we didn't get any big salmon over the last few season and this was a good strong fighting fish hope it gets on to the redds to complete his journey . Another salmon that sticks in the Memory was Charlies personal best 22lb salmon which was a hard weeks fishing reward plus a fantastic win on the horses on the final afternoon thats what its all about at tweedswood we have great fun i hope that you will return again to see what it throws at us in 2018 so to you all cheers from the Tweedwood Team .
