Ladykirk is a prolific Lower Tweed beat, and it mostly lies within the policies of Ladykirk House, with good access to the main pools through the beautiful parkland. The three mile beat is all single bank, and with fish coming in on the tides, they often lie in the pools awaiting high water. This can provide good sport in low water conditions for both salmon and sea trout.

This is one of the Tweed's most prolific low water beats and it has done exceptionally well in dry years. Its position next to the tidal waters, often allows large quantities of fish to build up as they are forced to wait for higher water. A classic example of this was the very dry season in 2003 which resulted in a truly remarkable catch. Ladykirk is best in the early autumn, although it offers very reasonable fishing throughout the year. Primarily a salmon beat, it also has a good run of sea trout.
The beat mostly lies within the policies of Ladykirk House with good access to the main pools through the beautiful parkland. The three mile beat is all single bank, but throughout most of its length, this is the better bank. The former stone netting shiels have been renovated to make excellent fishing huts with up to five boats available. The meeting room can be used to store clothing, equipment and fish.
There will be upto a maximun of eight rods fishing the whole beat until the August Bank Holiday weekend with one ghillie provided. Four of these rods are let on a one-day-a-week syndicate basis.
From August, bank Holiday Monday, only the top two of the five beats are let with four rods fishing, each sharing one beat, a boat and a ghillie with another rod. Hence at any one time, one of the rods in each pair will be fishing from the bank and one from the boat with a ghillie. Each pair will move beats at the middle and end of each day.
Anybody giving reasonable notice will be able to book an extra ghillie should he wish to do so. There is an additional charge for this service which is payable on the day.
THERE WILL BE NO BOAT FISHING IF THE WATER EXCEEDS 2'6", AND NO BANK OR WADING FROM 4 FEET AND ABOVE AT NORHAM BRIDGE ON SUMMER SUMMER HEIGHT.
