The Horsbrugh beat is on the North (left) bank of the former association water at Cardrona.
The beat has always been a consistently productive stretch on the upper Tweed, located in a very picturesque area of countryside.
Given the right conditions, anglers have as good a chance as anywhere of connecting with a fish.
The majority of the pools are easily fished, with easy access, as the main road runs parallel to the river for most of the beat, with several parking spots available.
A couple of pools are a little more challenging and not so suitable for the less able or inexperienced angler.
Double handed rods of 12 to 14 feet are adequate but in early autumn and lower water even a single handed or switch rod is fine.
There is no full time ghillie but expert advice on tackle, techniques and conditions is readily available.
Anglers staying at the McDonald Cardrona Hotel can literally just walk down to the river in the morning.
