Ellem Fishing Club

This fascinating social history of the oldest existing trout fishing club in the world will provide both anglers and non anglers alike with a truly memorable flavour of life in Berwickshire since 1829.

Its material boasts an interactive computer system where children and adults alike can explore the River Whiteadder, its history, ecosystems, conservation and much more. Look at everything from the life cycle of the trout and those creatures on which it feeds: the measures put in place by the Tweed Foundation to conserve and preserve the Tweed river system, the history of mills on the river and much more. One can even look at fish travelling upstream using underwater footage. Come and explore, enjoy and learn.
