A BEAT TO TRY THIS MONTH

Bole­side

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Fishing Reports -

This mid­dle Tweed beat has long been re­garded as one of the best. It is dif­fer­ent from the other top per­form­ing beats, in that it is by far the fur­thest up the river. The beat’s po­si­tion, just below the meet­ing of the Tweed with the Et­trick Wa­ter, ac­counts for much of its suc­cess. Spring fish go­ing to the Et­trick and au­tumn fish head­ing for the up­per Tweed all have to wait at Bole­side un­til there is enough wa­ter for them to con­tinue. The beat is two miles long which, rarely for Tweed, is dou­ble bank the whole way. There are two boats pro­vided and there is good ac­cess by car to the hut and to most of the 10 pools. Day Tick­ets for sal­mon from £110. Con­tact: Tom Carter, Fish­pal. Tel: 01573 470612. Pur­chase tick­ets on­line: Fish­pal.com
