After over 30 years, Kelso’s very popular and long established fishing, shooting & country clothing shop, Tweedside Tackle, has moved to new premises in Kelso to even better serve their customers.

They are only casting their fly across the road to 13 Bridge Street, a bit closer to the River Tweed’s Junction Pool, arguably the most famous salmon pool in the world.

Tweedside Tackle opened in the early 80’s and was bought in 2006 by dynamic fishing duo Tim & Caroline Pilcher.  With a CV which shouts expertise Tim was formerly General Manager at the renowned Farlows of Pall Mall and has also run a fishing tackle store and marina in Islamorada on the Florida Keys and in Fiji, not to mention working as a deckhand on a big game fishing boat owned by the world-renowned Graham Wallace. He claims to have “ably taught his wife how to fish” which is demonstrated by the 11 International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) world records they hold between them!   The business in Kelso is thriving but Tim explains:

When the lease came up on the old shop we decided this was the perfect opportunity for a spring clean and freshen up of our business with a new premise.  The new shop has wonderful natural light and is perfect for displaying our stock and ideal for the Tweed fishermen to pop in after morning coffee or before their evening pint in the neighbouring Ednam House Hotel!

Plenty of stock to interest game anglers inside the new store 

Tweedside Tackle also trades very successfully online via its website at www.tweedsidetackle.co.uk for those not lucky enough to live close enough to access the shop itself. In addition, Tim writes ‘Tim’s Tales’, his blog of Fisherman’s Tales and he is online to give his advice to learners/beginners and expert fisherman alike!

Keep an eye on their website, Facebook page and Twitter for opening offers and events.
