Overview

Boleside has long been regarded as one of the best Tweed beats, and is different from the other top performing beats, in that it is by far the furthest up the river. The beat's position, just below the meeting of the Tweed with the Ettrick Water, accounts for much of its success. Spring fish going to the Ettrick and autumn fish heading for the upper Tweed all have to wait at Boleside until there is enough water for them to continue. Hence the beat does well in early summer as well as in the autumn. There is also a very useful run of sea trout in the summer months.

The beat is two miles long which, rarely for Tweed, is double bank the whole way. There are two boats provided and there is good access by car to the hut and to most of the ten pools.

Tenants fish on a rotation basis as determined on a Monday morning. Rods who are fishing for the whole week will be allocated their rotation at that time. Tenants who are fishing for less than a week will fit into the pre-determined rotation and their positions will be allocated by draw of lots.

Until 2nd September a maximum of five rods are fished at any one time. In the autumn period (from 4th September) six rods are let and an occasional house rod may be fished but only when conditions permit.
