Salmon Fishing Scotland Tweed Angling Fair 2008.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Tweed Angling Fair 2008.
The Tweed Angling Fair has been running now for 3 years and has become a very prestigious event in the Angling calender. It is well run and is a must for enthusiastic game fishers.

This was the final of the Roxburghe Spey Casting Championships with a first prize of £1000. Unfortunately the casting conditions were not good due to the bad upstream wind but there was still some long casts with the Scots and the Norwegians doing battle for the longest cast.

Orri Vigfusson from Iceland gave a talk in the Indoor hall about the on going battle to keep Atlantic Salmon to the fore on the world stage and help conserve our stocks.

There were numerous casting demonstrations from casting experts from all over the world. These included Way Yin from America, Klaus Frimor from Scandinavia, Hywel Morgan from Wales and of course our own talents such as Andy Murray, Scott MacKenzie and Eoin Fairgrieve to name but a few.
