The Tweed Trophy 2019
The Tweed Trophy
Fin and Game are delighted to announce we will be sponsoring the Tweed Trophy for the upcoming season. The trophy will be awarded to the fisherman who catches the first spring salmon of the season on the River Tweed.
In order to claim the prize, you must have photographic evidence of the catch and one other witness of your fish. You must then contact the team at Fin and Game who will note your entry. Either by email: [email protected], phone: 01573 224066 ot text message: 07545036877. Once the catch has been confirmed we will then arrange a presentation of The Tweed Trophy to the successful angler in our store in Kelso. The successful winner will also be presented with a goodie back from Fin and Game with some great fishing must haves.
With the previous season proving to disappoint many local anglers are very excited about the upcoming season and ready to kit up and get back out in the water. Our team will be on hand all season to make sure you have the best kit and offer any advice we can to make sure you get the best out the 2019 season!
To all those heading out on the Tweed in search of the first springer we wish you the best of luck.
We also would like to invite all fishermen and their friends and family to celebrate the opening of the season with us in our store in Kelso on February 1st 2019. We will be providing drinks, nibbles and a raffle to kick off the season. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
ABOUT THE TWEED TROPHY
The Tweed Trophy is historic on the grounds that it is the very first curved fish Jason Sweeny ever made and thus was a milestone for many others. It is made of 316 stainless steel and totally hand beaten. The date, name of the rod, boatman and beat are all hand engraved on to the actual fish leaving a permanent record of a local tradition which started in 2007.
