Len­nel, River Tweed

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Fishing Reports -

Len­nel, on the lower Tweed at Cold­stream, is gen­er­ally only fished by mem­bers of the syn­di­cate and their guests. The beat fishes four rods and em­ploys four boat­men. There is two and a half miles of Scot­tish bank-fish­ing with seven named pools. The top pool is shared with Corn­hill and the bot­tom two with Till­mouth. Mem­bers are fly-fish­ers first and fore­most, and subscribe to the prin­ci­ples of Tweed Fly-fish­ing Pre­ferred (TFP) whereby fly-fish­ing is oblig­a­tory ex­cept in very ad­verse con­di­tions. More than 80 per cent of salmon/grilse are re­turned. Len­nel is re­garded as a low-water beat but has some pools that fish well in higher water from a boat. Day-tick­ets for salmon cost from £100.
