KAILZIE FISH­ERY

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Where To Fish -

SIT­U­ATED next to the River Tweed, and tucked among the beau­ti­ful Bor­der hills, Kailzie Fish­ery pro­vides the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for the an­gler. The two-acre lochan, lo­cated 2.5 miles south of Pee­bles, has an aver­age depth of 12 feet and is burn fed. Stocked daily to main­tain a good head of trout at all times, it is home to blue, brown and rain­bow trout start­ing at 2lb and go­ing up to dou­ble fig­ures. The cur­rent over­all record at the fish­ery is a 22lb rain­bow. Kailzie Fish­ery caters for all types of an­glers from be­gin­ners to ex­perts. Pre­ferred flies for win­ter (when in­ter­me­di­ate or sink-tip lines are ad­vised) are Orange Fritz, Viva, Cat’s Whisker and Ace of Spades. Dur­ing spring, the fish will be at­tracted to Tad­poles and Dam­sels, and in sum­mer Buzzers and Dad­dies on the sur­face. These flies can be bought at the fish­ery, hand-tied by ex­pe­ri­enced fly-ty­ers. Off the wa­ter, toi­lets, snacks and re­fresh­ments will be found in the new­lyex­tended lodge, along with a com­pre­hen­sive as­sort­ment of fish­ing equip­ment and cloth­ing for sale. For those re­quir­ing spe­cial as­sis­tance, there are car spa­ces avail­able next to the fish­ing hut. Tu­ition can be ar­ranged at the fish­ery. A sep­a­rate bait pond is next door to the lodge and tackle for both fly and bait fish­ing can be hired on-site. Dis­abled visi­tors have pri­or­ity park­ing and easy wheel­chair ac­cess for fish­ing, toi­lets and the lodge.
