The Boathouse and Canny Fishing from 2022 is under the new ownership of Mark and Rohaise French ,recently a great deal of work has gone into improving the access to the Boathouse Pool which can now be fished without a boat and ghillie, new access to pools on the lower beat have also been cleared.
The maximum number of rods allowed to fish at any one time is two on Canny and one on Gliddeyhaugh from Monday to Friday and two rods on Canny on Saturdays. The Gliddeyhaugh rod is NOT available on Saturdays.
The Boathouse Fishings comprise Gliddeyhaugh and Canny beats extending for approximately 1,000 yards from the Richie Burn above The Boathouse to a point just below the Westford Shiel above Norham Bridge on the right (English) bank. Fishing is for three rods Monday to Friday and two rods on Saturdays (the rod on Gliddeyhaugh, the upper third of the beat, is not available on Saturdays).
The lower two thirds of the beat are easily fished from the bank or by wading, the upper third of the beat is now fishable by boat or wading.
Like most Bottom Tweed beats, the beat excels in low water conditions when its proximity to tidal waters results in large quantities of fish coming in off the tide and resting in the beat until water levels rise. The beat has a selection of pools from 6 to 25 feet, ranging from deep, slow channels and dubs to some faster moving glides.
The beat is set in a particularly peaceful and beautiful stretch of the river and offers excellent value Tweed fishing.
The Boathouse is a good place to learn to fish. The beat offers excellent value fishing and gradual, shelving banks without many obstructions to catch the beginner's fly.
The 'beach' area in front of the house provides a safe spot to introduce children to the joys of fishing. There is vehicular access to the beat, making it suitable for elderly or mobility-impaired guests. Accommodation is available for up to 10 guests at The Boathouse overlooking the beat, subject to availability.
