1250 yards double bank, 4 pools
Ideally fishes four rods , please read description below for more details.
Lower Caberston is available for let as a single beat unit. Having taken the fishing, the tenants are free to fish as many or as few rods as they wish, bearing in mind the entire length of the water is double bank and over-rodding will disturb only the tenants themselves.
As with all Upper Tweed fishing, fish normally start to arrive with the first good flood in September and numbers build up from there until the end of the season.
The beat is very easily located with the upstream or top boundary being Walkerburn bridge. The bottom of the beat is marked with two significant white posts 1250 yards below. There is easy access through the village to the top and middle of the north bank but to fish the south bank cars require to be parked at Walkerburn bridge with a short walk down to the selected pool.
Although there are four named pools, in higher water the top two merge into one, giving a long stretch which is fishable from either bank. Similarly, the middle pool "Damfoot" fishes from either bank with the fast headwaters slowing gradually into a long tail.
Until 2007 the water has been fished as part of a local club arrangement involving other water as well. Reported catches are not thought to have reflected the potential of the beat and rods are advised to peruse the catch records of adjoining beats for a flavour of the best times to fish and possible catches.
There is no boat or ghillie or bankside facilities but the village pub is only five minutes walk away.
Normal Tweed rules and customs apply to the beat.
A catch return must be sent by e-mail to the owner please.
