    Comparing the Thurso and Tweed Part 2

    I remember that fiasco, but cannot remember if it was to improve the fishing above or below, but MG was always deemed a poor relation beat, in relation to its adjoining and opposite relations, not now! new owners, gillies, and improvments resulting in good spring/summer catches, and a 5ya of 143...

    Scierra You were also right about the bottom of st Thomas island being shallower! The fish when the tide ran off lay right in the v just where the two waters meet! It was a great place to fish, then when exhausted, they queued up again a couple of hours before dark waiting till the dusk before...

    No i dont think tweedhill ever owned it! It marches with it! And your right it is a long way away probably nearly two miles! It was done under the guise that the main stream past the island was turning into the by water, and the by water turning into the main stream (if that makes any sense?) So...

    Well said, tweed has a following of loyal rods who respect its worth, loyalty to keep returning even after what hopefully has just been a blip between a change in seasonal running times! And soon returning to its former glory as the best salmon river in the uk

    Comparing the Thurso and Tweed Part 2

    Nearly all you say is fact, and cannot be disputed, we at the bottom have plenty canal water! But enough faster water to still catch fish, we are not separated so basically the rubbish water is either spun or more likely to be not fished! Tillmouth yes is single bank, but the shear size of the...

    Comparing the Thurso and Tweed Part 1

    I would say my posts will stand as my opinion! Nothing more or nothing else! But no criticism after your " cherry picked" questions? Does that indicate that i held my own? Or are you bowing out gracefully? After all this thread was not supposed to be a comparison! Was it not?
