A surprise birthday trip to the Tweed

What better suprise birthday gift for your husband who loves fishing than a trip to the Tweed for spring salmon.

Donna enjoys watching her husband fishing for sea trout and salmon on the River Wear during the summer months and had never thought about fly fishing, until she booked this trip.

With the help of AAPGAI Master in the double handed rod Paul Little and I gave Donna a introductory lesson to casting on a very cold saturday morning last month. Most of Donna’s fishing will be from a Tweed boat, so casting suitable for a boat was demonstrated and coached.

I recommended Caroline from Tweedside Tackle, who hires rods, reels, lines suitable for the River Tweed and female waders.

We will be watching the catches page on FishTweed with interest.
