The British Beat

Back from a fly fishing trip to the U.S., where the opportunities are plentiful, cheap and not always correctly managed, from a British perspective, author Tam Leach tries to find the same experience on the Tweed. “Most Tweed salmon beats – stretches of the river – are privately owned and permits are expensive, kicking in at around £75. Prime spring or autumn “rods” on the famous Junction Pool in Kelso are almost impossible to come by, even for those who can afford the rumoured £38,000 six-day, six-person price-tag.”
