The club formed in 1911 is the largest in the Borders. It is the only one with its own clubrooms. Visiting anglers can make use of these facilities. Over 1000 anglers fish on our waters each year.

Fishing is available on a day or season ticket basis. There are four lochs to choose from, two of them Acreknowe and Williestruther which are near Hawick have rainbow trout and are stocked monthly. The other two Akermoor and Barnes loch, Stobs are hill lochs and are stocked annually with brown trout.
