Tiptoe fishing on the River Till is approximately two miles upstream from the junction of Tweed at Tillmouth. The beat starts to fish from May onwards with sea trout fishing particularly good from early Summer into early Autumn. There is a healthy natural stock of brown trout and grayling. The beat fishes best for salmon when the water is above 12″. It is also a beat to consider when the main river is in flood and anglers wish to continue fishing.
Except in high water, wading is necessary if you wish to fish the fly, however only a few parts of the beat are easy to wade, lending itself to the more experienced fly angler. Please note a single 7/8″ or switch rod will cover most eventualities for the beat throughout the year. Tiptoe Beat
