Over 100,000 rod/days to choose from!
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. 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.
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.
