Top Ten Trout Streams in the United Kingdom

Freestone Rivers: The Till, England
By Brian Clarke

The Till is a tributary of the Tweed, the famous salmon river that marks the boundary between England and Scotland. Like its Welsh counterparts, the Till is beautiful, has creditable fishing for resident browns, some salmon, perhaps the biggest grayling in the whole of the British Isles—and first-class fishing for sea-run browns. Like the Towy fish, the Till sea trout can run before the snow is off the banks. The cream of the fishing comes in June and July, with the arrival of the main sea trout run. The best water overall is the 17 miles between Wooler and the Till's confluence with the Tweed. Same tactics as in Wales. Good base: Berwick.
