Welcome to "PTFA"
Welcome to The Peeblesshire Trout Fishing Association Website. We are proud to offer excellent fishing for brown trout and grayling in Scotland, in the very heart of the Scottish Borders.
Our Association permit allows fishing on approximately 23 miles of the River Tweed and 5 miles of the Lyne Water in the Peeblesshire area of Scotland with the exception of private stretches which are clearly marked with notice boards.
Free instruction on river fishing for juniors (18 and under) is being provided by the Association on the River Tweed in Haylodge Park, Peebles between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Saturday 5 September 2015.
Season Tickets, and Day Permits are available for a modest cost and it is now possible to buy day tickets online. Click on the below button.Buy a Permit
The Association's season ticket also allows anglers to fish for winter grayling during the months of January, February and March.
The trout season extends from 1st of April until the 30th of September. Fishing is by fly only throughout the season. Anglers under 18 years of age may fish free of charge but only if they possess a valid free permit available from the outlets detailed in this website.
Please note that the Peeblesshire Trout Fishing Association operates a strict catch and release policy for wild trout under 22" in length, and anglers are requested to use barbless hooks.
