The Lees beat is a two mile horseshoe of the River Tweed around Coldstream with twelve named pools. The beat is well situated in the river as it is accessible to fish in low water and one of the first beats where fish hold up when the river is consistently high.
The Lees is fished as one beat. Many weeks are let to one tenant for the whole week, but there are also half week and daily lets. Four rods are let throughout the season.
The beat has two boatmen throughout the year. There are two fishing huts, one for the rods and another for the boatmen, with WC.
