Fishing

Below the house, the River Teviot runs mostly gently but sometimes in flood towards its Union with the River Tweed at the famous salmon fishing Junction Pool at Kelso some eight miles downstream. It contains an excellent if difficult to catch stock of wild brown trout. With skill and persistence they can be caught on a well cast fly. There is also a good run of sea trout and salmon which can provide great sport for the keen angler. In the back end some very large salmon have from tint to time been caught. Fishing can be rented from Lothian Estate Office, Jedburgh, Scotland (tel. 01835 862201).
