The single-bank fishery comprises the Gliddeyhaugh and Canny beats, extending for approximately 1000m along the right bank (English side) from the Richie Burn, upstream of The Boathouse, to a point on Canny Island above Norham Bridge.
The fishing accommodates three rods from Monday to Friday and two rods on Saturday when the Gliddeyhaugh section, which includes the Boathouse Pool, is unavailable.
In common with other lower Tweed beats close to the tidal water, large numbers of fish may accumulate in holding pools during periods of low water as they wait for a rise in levels. The beat has a selection of pools ranging from deep, slow, holding water to fast moving glides and streams. Fish may be caught at most heights of water but between 1ft 6in and 2ft 6in on the Norham gauge is the most productive.
Teeming with wildlife and birdlife, the beat is set in a particularly tranquil and beautiful stretch of the river, devoid of traffic noise, and offers excellent value Tweed fishing.
With gradual-shelving gravel underfoot Boathouse and Canny is a great place to safely learn to fish and the beach area in front of the house provides a safe spot to introduce children to the joys of fishing. There is vehicular access almost to the water's edge, making it suitable for elderly or mobility-impaired guests.
Accommodation is available for up to ten guests at The Boathouse which overlooks the beat, subject to availability. Enquiries should be made to the owners via. https://www.boathouseontweed.co.uk
