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.
