All information about the Boatmen on the River Tweed.


Tweed Boatmen are a distinctive feature of fishing the Tweed.  The width of the river, with its deep pools and dubs, has always necessitated a skilled Boatman to help anglers reach the fish they are after.  Our Boatmen harbour a deep knowledge of the river and its ways, born of long association.  There have been many famed characters over the years, and todays Boatmen are no different - their affinity with the river is unique and important.

The only difference today is that women are sometimes Boatmen too.
