Spring Fly Fishing Trip On The River Teviot In The Borders Of Scotland

Contact Us Now About This Trip And All Other Fly Fishing in Scotland

Norfolk Fly Fishing  is very pleased to announce that we are offering another fabulous fly fishing in Scotland guided trip.
The guided fly fishing trip will be on the River Teviot in the Scottish Borders and as usual I will be on hand to ensure you have a terrific fishing experience and show you great casting techniques with both single and double handed rods – whatever your ability!

The Fishing
There are 4 rods available for the week (6 days) or on a half week basis (3 days Monday to Wednesday or Thursday to Saturday).
Single or group bookings are welcome.
The River Teviot is a major tributary of the famous River Tweed and joins the Tweed just at Kelso. The beat we will be fishing is some 6 miles upstream of the junction and has excellent holding pools for salmon and sea trout; there is also a good head of wild brown trout.
Whatever the conditions, you have a choice of fishing. The access to the beat is good with a single track to the fishing hut, which is situated in the middle of the beat.  Wading is good in most pools and we recommend you bring your chest waders.
Where You Will Be Staying
We will be staying in Kelso or Jedburgh, both a short drive from the fishing. The Scottish Borders at this time of year are at their most attractive and there are many interesting places to visit for any non-fishers to enjoy. Kelso holds a major fly fishing show on the 29th &  30th May, giving you an opportunity to see some of the new innovations from the tackle manufacturers and maybe treat your self.
How To Get There
From the south, take the A1 north to Newcastle then the A696 to Otterburn then the A68 to Jedburgh.  From Edinburgh airport, take the ring road A702 and the A68 south to Jedburgh.  Complete instructions will be available on receipt of a confirmed booking.
What Fishing Gear To Bring?
Bring with you: 9’ to 10’ trout rods 13’/14’ double handed rods, floating and sink tip lines or shooting heads if you have them. Also bring, your net, wading staff, waders and your usual fishing gear. If you do not have a suitable rod or outfit, I have a selection from the Hardy & Greys ranges available for hire at a nominal price (details available on request).
