Welcome to Peeblesshire Trout Fishing Association

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.

Please note that with effect from 31 March 2014 the Elibank stretch of the Tweed is no longer included in the Peeblesshire Trout Fishing Association Ticket as the new proprietor has terminated the lease.
