Norham on the Tweed flyfishing

Recommended Posts

Do anyone have any experience of fishing the Tweed near Norham, Northumberland. SWMBO has treated me to a couple of days mid March. I’ll be looking for grayling and brownies rather than salmon. Any suggestions re flies would be greatly appreciated 

cheers

Tim

I know that Norham has a thriving Angling Assoc known as The Norham and Ladykirk A.A. and have water on both the north and south bank of the Tweed.   Its a bit early for dry fly so you are looking at a team of wet flies on intermediate or slow sinking lines.   My own cast at this time of year would certainly have March Brown, Greenwells Glory and Partridge and Orange. There are two tackle outlets in Norham ,Castle Gunmakers and Forman's Butchers and I would think have permits on sale also.  David Foreman is well experienced on Tweed and should be able to give further advice on fly selection and tactics.

Thank you for the advice BP. I’ll definitely use this information. The advice re the sinking and intermediate lines is interesting as my natural instinct would have been to use a floater with ultra heavy nymphs. The sausage roll sounds great too.

many thanks

Tim

15th march is the start date of the brown trout season, however in recent seasons the tweed commission have advised delaying this until April 1st. Sunday fishing is also banned by many clubs.

The accommodation that we are renting for the week has the fishing rights for a mile stretch of the tweed report that I can fish from the 15th March

My brother owns the Mason Arms in Norham.

He gets loads of anglers staying there.

I'll speak to him in the week and report.

I'm sure he mentioned the 1st April which is particuler to that part of the Tweed.

Trout fishing is free in tidal waters innit?....and isn't it tidal up past the Chain Bridge....which as I remember, is just downstream from Ladykirk/Horncliffe?
