    25,

    The Borders Gunroom at St Boswells on the Tweed does this and include an good selection of the right flies, a really good idea. Google their number and give them a call.

    Orvis in Kelso also do good quality Wader,Rod & Reel ,day/weekly hire at around 25 per day. Ring 01573 225810 and ask for Ronnie Glass - Fishing Specialist. May be able to do a better deal for weekly hire.

    Default Interesting.

    Not heard of anyone doing this on this side of the Pond. If you're 'in the sticks at some Lodge in "Alaskan," probably, but that's about it. But even then the majority of the tackle would be provided.

    Default Since the Borders....

    ......are being well touted I suppose I am honour bound to mention that Tim at Tweedside Tackle can provide the same service!

    I have no knowledge of how much these people charge these days, but I would advise you to ensure that you are getting reasonable stuff....I have heard from a friend whose luggage was lost by an airline being given a 15' 11wt. rod, with a mismatched line, for low water summer fishing. This was from a panic hiring arranged by phone - this was NOT in the Borders!! Give yourself time and ring around is my advice: also consider asking for local opinion here on the board as to what you need at a low budget and put a wanted ad. in the Classified section...It will probably be cheaper than a weeks hire.
