OT here????

Jacco is basically correct!

Sept to Oct are the months during which the big rush normally comes on Tweed! There is a high proportion of really fresh fish and some days really big catches are possible. Not often, but sometimes as many as 15 fish in a day. Also at that time most of the fishing is from boats so a boatman has to be paid...that is included in the rent.

The most expensive beat is probably Henderside at max of about Ł1200 per rod per day, and even at that it is impossible to get a day or week.

We have here in the UK a big number of wealthy fishermen and, increasingly, non-nationals are lining up for the best of the fishing...especially Scandanavians. They are very successful as they are more innovative than the average UK fisherman.

But that is slowly changing. The UK ones are usually rich and have had a week booked for many years....they tend to fish in a very conservative fashion. There are also many rich young but inexperienced lawyers, bankers etc. along with a lot of 'corporate' PR lettings to companies.

The Summer runs of salmon used to be very small and the Spring [1 Feb - end May] when I first came to fish here were fast disappearing. Then it cost as little as Ł400 for a full week + hotel. Now the runs are improving quickly and the average size of fish is also increasing. [used to be say, 10 lbs and very few bigger fish...now many more fish and plenty of 15lbs+.] The autumn/fall on Tweed is called the backend and again the fish are plentiful, larger, fresh and also - especially far upstream - too many old very coloured spring fish are caught.

February is cold water, sunk line with big, heavy, slow tubes and same can happen in November. Also these months have a lot of rain and sometimes snow melt. FRom March (it can also be cold and wet). The Tweed can become totally unfishable when there are rapid rises of water as the river flows mainly through red soil. Many days each year are lost due to the water being too dirty....but you get no refund on the rent!

Summer - June to end of August can be very dry, but that has changed the last two years. Usually a lot of smaller grilse and some summer salmon. Again that is changing as there are more bigger fish and the grilse are much later, as last year - they were still running in November.



Send me a PM with your email and I will send you more information.

The coitus time for salmon here is December January......they like to cuddle-up when its very cold......and one thing leads to another when there is no WEB, TV, Bowling Alley, Porn channels etc.

These spent salmon, now totally disillusioned.....but genetically satisfied - you know the feeling - get washed back to sea when the water is in flood. Many survive. If the water is low they die in the river.

When these post-shag fish are numerous the river is closed for fishing, whereas on the Mirimichi - they are pursued for sport.

Wel, as you probably know, big money also rules the best rivers in Norway, too. Alta, where the Duke operates, is somewhat special, as they reserve some of the early season for the locals, on a sort of lottery basis, as the demand is far larger than the actual number of lisenses. Prices are fixed, though, - good for the locals, - but I don't count as local......

PM sent- would be nice to know more, and go there for the trip, not necessearaly for the fishig. Think I'll stick to the local grounds for that....
license fees are 150-200 kr pr 24 hrs, - fish usually up to 5-6 kg kg at max, and plenty of sea trout in the late season, - good fun, some wild beasts they are...

But it's nonsense.
I don't like milk.
So why would I cry for it?

So we say it rather:
