Tweed – Dawyck

Dawyck Estate is situated in the spectacular Stobo Valley, regarded as one of the most picturesque in Scotland. The river here is secluded from the road with more than 3 miles of streamy runs, glides and deeper pools split over 3 beats, all with easy access. Rods are given beat instructions, advice and a detailed pool map from the fishery managers, either Finlay Wilson or Gwyd Williams, at the start of their fishing. The surrounding estate lands, natural woodland and Upper Tweeddale hills provide a magnificent backdrop to the fishing while otters, kingfishers and Osprey can often be seen.

Dawyck has the advantage of dropping and clearing remarkably quickly. With no tributaries of any size upstream, the river here can be perfectly fishable soon after significant rainfall.

Wild brown trout, grayling and sea trout fishing is available from April to September. The Tweed’s stunning wild trout offer tremendous sport, especially early season on the dry fly, with fish up to 4lb and occasionally even bigger to be had, while the quality of grayling and sea trout fishing on the Tweed is also first class. For further details, contact Finlay.
