100 years difference

An interesting article in the “looking back in time” in the Berwickshire News this week :-

“The low state of the water is proving a serious matter for those anglers who have rented beats on the Tweed for salmon fishing this autumn, and as the prospects of a flood are yet remote the outlook is most unpromising. In the lower reaches of the river only an occasional small fish is being got, but there are any number of sea trout and salmon waiting to ascend if only there was sufficient volume of water to fetch them up.”

With 560 fish having been reported for the 5 days so far this week, it would be interesting to see what the differences were. The river level is steady at present and there are a good number of fish over the 20 lb mark being caught. It also looks as though the ‘indian summer’ is coming to an end, so hopefully water levels will remain at a good level for a while yet to let the fish travel throughout the river and up to the upper reaches.
