Hen­der­syde, River Tweed

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Orvis -

This is one of the top Tweed beats and of­ten achieves the high­est catches per rod in Scot­land. These fig­ures are achieved not least be­cause of the ex­pe­ri­ence and ded­i­ca­tion of the gil­lies, whose ex­cep­tion­ally high stan­dards are re­marked upon by ten­ants. Only two rods are al­lowed to fish at a time and each is looked af­ter by one of the two gil­lies pro­vided. The wa­ter is split into two beats, which are fished on al­ter­nate days in ro­ta­tion with Sprous­ton op­po­site. The two rods are thus able to fish one mile of what is in ef­fect dou­ble-bank fish­ing. Boats are pro­vided and there is a hut on each of the top and bot­tom beats. Due to the owner’s de­ci­sion to re­strict rod num­bers to two, there is more fish­ing avail­able to each rod than al­most any other beat on the lower Tweed. Day-tick­ets for salmon cost £522 plus vat. Con­tact Tom Carter, Fish­pal. Tel: 01573 470 612. Buy tick­ets on­line at www.fish­pal.com/scot­land/tweed/ Hen­der­syde/?dom=pal
