Whilst the Tweed Code is essentially the same as previous guidance, more emphasis has now been placed on how and when anglers should consider spinning as a method of fishing, and also further notes on how to prevent foul-hooking fish.
For the first time, a single-sheet Summary of the Code, entitled “A Summary of the Tweed Angling Rules for Salmon and Sea-trout”, has also been produced and is intended to highlight all the main points of the full Code in an easy-to-read way. The Summary should, however, be referred to in concert with the full Tweed Angling Code, and is not intended as a substitute for it.
All Tweed angling huts should shortly be displaying the new Summary of the rules.
