Autumn Tweed Salmon
Rae Borras is right at home in this episode of The Game Fishers Diary, as he heads north to his cottage on the banks of the River Tweed to fish the autumn run of Atlantic Salmon. This yearly getaway is a real privilege for Rae, situated casting distance from the bank. As Salmon anglers around the UK will tell you, it just doesn’t get any better than the hallowed Tweed when it comes to Salmon. It’s the most desirable week of the year, the first of October, and despite rising water, the Salmon are present in massive numbers. Top gillie Dougie Tate has no problem putting Rae onto the fish, and he enjoys a session anyone would aspire to have.
