  • Salmon fishing on the Tweed


Loved and celebrated by anglers around the world, the River Tweed offers some of Scotland’s very finest fishing – although often it pays to receive some guiding or instruction to get the very best out of the experience.

And that’s where fly fishing instructor and guide Steve Culbert comes in. Peebles-based, Steve offers a friendly guiding and instruction service, helping clients fish on the Tweed for salmon, wild brown trout, sea trout and grayling, as well as on still waters in the surrounding area (he is also resident fishing instructor at the nearby Kailzie Fishery and Loganlea in the Pentlands). All equipment is provided, while lunch, refreshments and transport are also on offer, if required.

The testaments on Steve's website give an indication of the kind of service on offer. “A fantastic afternoon and a great introduction to fly fishing for four novices,” wrote Euan McBride. “Steve knows his stuff and has the patience of a saint! For a low-key stag do it was grand and the stag himself loved it.”

Catering for everything from one-to-one tuition to groups and corporate events, Steve can tailor a day’s fishing accordingly. All are welcome, from complete novices to experienced anglers looking to fine-tune their fly-fishing technique. After all, there’s always room for improvement!
