Many thanks to Charles Cooke for this fabulous picture of the Tweed’s finest bit of salmon-catching water, photographed about half-way through today’s summer solstice. Charlie kindly heeded my request for a photo of the river.
What a river it is. I have been lucky to fish the Tweed a bit and like everywhere it is suffering a drop in salmon numbers at the moment but we all live in hope. Two fish were caught at Junction on Tuesday this week, one of them a 20-pounder.
Meanwhile there are reports of decent numbers of sea-trout in the Solway rivers. That is nice to hear.
