Bemersyde beat lands a 25 pound salmon
Ghillie Ian Farr was delighted when syndicate member, Sandy Scott, landed a 25lb-fish, the second of the day on Friday the 15th of September. Both fish were safely released back into the Tweed.
“After plentiful rainfall, we have good water to fish this autumn,” said Ian Farr. “Unlike the two previous Septembers, we have a foot on the gauge above summer levels and we have seen fish running all week.”
The Tweed Foundation’s 2017 monitoring work shows promising recovery of juvenile salmon after last season’s poor results of salmon fry. The frequent and extensive flooding that occurred in the winter period of 2015 and early 2016 caused Redd washout and possible disruption to spawning.
Bemersyde has limited rod availability in September, October and November this year.
The estate employs two full-time ghillies in the autumn and there is a choice of bank and boat fishing. The experienced ghillies are happy to help with casting or fishing and have introduced many beginners to the joy of fly fishing.
Bemersyde House (sleeps 12) is available for fishing lets. The estate incorporates Scott’s View and is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
