Gala Angling Association is proud to offer excellent fishing for Brown Trout and Grayling in the very heart of the Scottish Borders.
The association permit allows fishing on approximately 13 miles of the River Tweed (with the exclusion of several reserved areas), the River Ettrick and approximately 5 miles of the Gala Water.
All the areas that are reserved are marked with notice boards and can be seen on our beat map.
We are indebted to the following estates who grant us permission to fish on Tweed: Ashiestiel, Yair, Fairnilee, Sunderland Hall, Faldonside, Abbotsford and Lowood. Also Meigle Farm, Rink Farm and Laggan Properties (Boleside), Upper Faldonside, Gala Water and Torwoodlee Estate.
Our local membership stands at around 100 and we have the same number of visitor members. We are members of the Federation of Borders Angling Associations and the TTGI (Tweed Trout & Grayling Initiative). We also have a representative on the River Tweed Commissioners General Council.
