Rutherford Clan returns to the river Tweed

Come and fish with Tweed Guide in Scotland. As the leading guide service for river fly fishing we offer a warm and enthusiastic welcome to all visitors from the USA & Canada.

We provide professional guidance on the River Tweed system, one of the great game fishing rivers, for wild brown trout, sea trout (sea-run brown trout), atlantic salmon and grayling fishing.

I can't thank you enough for all your hospitality.
We are deeply appreciative.
Our group of two couples fished with Tweed Guide for Trout on a beautiful private stretch of water. Tweed Guide placed us perfectly for all four to fish, with even the less experienced of us feeling perfectly comfortable. As an experienced trout fly fisherman, I would recommend Tweed Guide without hesitation.

The cost for salmon fishing on the River Tweed varies considerably throughout the year with the highest prices in the Autumn period up to the end of the season, this is due to catches and demand being greater at these times. Tweedguide endeavours to provide the most cost effective salmon fishing for it’s customers on established, quality beats.

"I have fished in many parts of the world and consider fishing the Tweed with Tweed Guide as one of my best fishing experiences. I highly recommend it for any angler regardless of level of experience"

Steve McIlvain (Miami Florida)


It was a pleasure meeting you and I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Tweed!
Good conversation with Alasdair and a lot of great pointers! I look forward to returning to the Tweed someday and hope to fish with you again.

All the best and “tight lines”

Frank Allen……Washington, USA

Lynda and I enjoyed the scenery, the conversation, the professional knowledge, and the patience with us both as we explored and learned with you! Thank you for an experience that will forever be imprinted on our lives! Your skill as a guide is exemplary, every place you said a fish would reside, there they were! Lynda also expressed a genuine appreciation for learning from you the casting techniques, and she was thrilled with her ability to be able to "do it" on her own!

Rivers in Scotland

We like Americans & Canadians.. and they seem to like us! Every year over 400 visitors from North America spend time with us on the beautiful River Tweed, a natural, but accessible wild river, with wild fish (there is no stocking of fish on the River Tweed, it doesn't need it), catch and release is the norm and the soundest sustainability credentials in Europe.

You too can escape to the real Scotland with Tweed Guide

I want to commend TWEED GUIDE for your quick and informative replies always within 24 hours and you answered all my questions. When we met on the Tweed for our day's fishing you could not have been more helpful or more informative. The fishing gear you provided was first class. I actually got the hang of the 15 ft pole with your help.
When I started looking into fishing in Scotland with the river permits. fees, ghillies and such things it appeared it would be a daunting task to make appropriate arrangements, but Tweed Guide made it all so simple. I would recommend anyone wanting to fish in the Borders Region to contact you first.
You quickly took the mystery out of the planning process so we could concentrate on the beauty of fishing the River Tweed. Thanks for your expert help. I hope to see you and the River Tweed again

You can almost fall out of bed and into the river Tweed, Elibank has 1.5 miles of single bank fishing on the upper River Tweed for salmon and sea trout, and excellent brown trout and grayling fishing.

There are two main huts, a larger hut and a second hut available on the beat with easy access to the fishing pools.
