Horncliffe consists of two miles of single bank fishing on the right (south) bank of the Tweed. The upper limit of the fishing is at Norham Castle whilst the lower limit is the top of St Thomas' Island, approximately six miles inland from Berwick-Upon-Tweed.
It is essentially a low water beat and with fish coming in on the tides, which at times can reach just below St Thomas' Island, it is a popular beat during the summer months.
Gary Hillary is the full time boatman and heads the fishing. Rods 14ft - 15ft 10-11 weight, or 11ft - 13ft 8-10 weight rods in summer and very low water conditions.
