The brilliant borderlands have been casting a spell on the angling fraternity for centuries.
The River Tweed has been a favourite for as long as anyone can remember and more recently Kielder Water in Northumberland has been building an excellent reputation.
But, in a region of wild landscapes, lakes and lochs, anglers are literally spoilt for choice. St Mary's Loch, between Selkirk and Moffat is the largest natural loch in the Scottish Borders, and fished for pike and brown trout.
In our fishing section at exploretheborders.com we’ll be concentrating on all things angling to help make you stay as fruitful as possible - and hopefully, if not already, you’ll become a regular visitor.
We will also be and serving up plenty of tales from the riverbanks, contact points for those providing services, and keeping anglers up to date with events and news.
Detailed information on the serious business of fishing - online booking, advice and angling information for all types of rod fishing in the Borders - is provided at FishPal based in Kelso.
