Nick Yonge, The Tweed Foundation’s Director, said: “Our Annual Auction is unique amongst such events, featuring many of the river’s leading and lesser-known beats during the most productive time of the season – the prolific autumn runs. Many of these beats are rarely available otherwise during this period. The Auction’s proceeds provide vital support for the conservation work of the Foundation which helps to ensure the future of the Tweed’s fish populations. We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Tweed proprietors as well as all those bidders who ensure our Auction’s continuing success”.
