BBC Country Tracks River Tweed

Joe Crowley goes on a journey along the River Tweed, following the path of the returning salmon. Joe starts just up-river from Berwick-upon-Tweed, where he joins a team tagging the salmon to survey their numbers.

At Kelso, Joe tries his hand at speycasting, a specialist form of fly fishing, before travelling to Philiphaugh. Here he tests the biodiversity of the Tweed by a method known as kick sampling, and catches up with the salmon as they leap upstream.

Joe finishes his journey at Selkirk, on the Scottish side of the border, the site of a defining battle in the Wars of the Three Kingdoms.

Eoin Fairgreave takes Joe Crowley fly fishing on the Tweed. Eoin discussed fly choice, and chose a Gledswood Shrimp for Joe to fish with. If you would like to read more about Eoin please click or purchase his handpicked fly selections for FishPal by clicking here.
