Clerklands Fly Fishing

Clerklands is a beautiful loch of around 4 acres in size and is up to 25ft deep in places. It is a very tranquil placer to fish and have a relaxing day.

It is set within the Riddell Estate, which lies about 5 minutes’ drive frome Selkirk and 10 minutes from Hawick.

Travel time from Edinburgh is around 1 hour and from Newcastel, around 1 ½ hours.

There is a good number of wild Brown trout for sporting purposes only and Rainbow and Blue trout are stocked regularly, up to double figures in size.

Opening hours are 8:30am – dusk, daily.

If we are not in, please sign in the book and fish, we will be back soon.

Holiday Cottage

If you don’t want to stray far from the fishing, we have a holiday cottage less than 200m from the lake. This single storey house has two en-suite double bedrooms and under floor heating. You can almost cast from your bedroom window!



Open all year around.
