Tweed – The Boathouse

The Boathouse Fishings comprise Gliddeyhaugh and Canny beats extending for approximately 1,000 yards from the Richie Burn above The Boathouse to a point opposite the Westford Shiel above Norham Bridge on the right (English) bank. Fishing is for three rods Monday to Friday and two rods on Saturdays (the rod on Gliddeyhaugh, the upper third of the beat, is not available on Saturdays).

The lower two thirds of the beat are easily fished from the bank or by wading, the upper third of the beat is fishable only from the boat.

Like most Bottom Tweed beats, the beat excels in low water conditions when its proximity to tidal waters results in large quantities of fish coming in off the tide and resting in the beat until water levels rise. The beat has a selection of pools from 6 to 25 feet, ranging from deep, slow channels and dubs to some faster moving glides.

The beat is set in a particularly peaceful and beautiful stretch of the river and offers excellent value Tweed fishing. The ghillie, Steve Herdman, has been on Tweed for 25 years and is renowned for his expertise, good humour and patience.
