Boleside has long been regarded as one of the best Tweed beats, and 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. Hence the beat does well in early summer as well as in the autumn. There is also a very useful run of sea trout in the summer months.
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 ten pools.
