Tweeddale Millenium Trout Fisheries
Rainbows into high double figures, blues and brown trout. Disabled access on a gravel pathway along one side of the main loch near the fishing lodge.
When I fished there I watched all afternoon as people caught their limits while I caught nowt! It happens like that some days, fortunately the day, and my pride, was saved when a fish of 4.5lbs took a Yellow Dancer.
