A few pics from our fishing. Long time member Steve Drury with a couple of salmon caught on our waters including a cracking beauty. A few scenic pics of TAS waters:

The new salmon season opens on Friday 1st February. The drier conditions means more settled rivers; so prospects for early fish are improved on our waters. Our pools at Wylam and Bywell Quarry offer chances of an early springer or two. Fish tend to hold up in our pools in the lower Tyne during lower flows. The Whiteadder also gives members the opportunity to catch some lovely spring fish. We have lots of excellent fly water offering opportunities for double handed fishing as well as single handed rods.
With the drift nets off and T and J netting times reduced more salmon and sea-trout will run our east coast rivers.
Tyne, Wear, Coquet, Till and Whiteadder will benefit from this. Each season we catch salmon in excess of 20lb and fish as large as 30lb and 35lb have been caught on our waters with several even larger fish lost off. Sea -trout into double figures have been caught and wild brown trout and grayling to well over 3lb.
22nd March sees brown trout season open up and even earlier in Scotland. We have a wide choice of places to fish for these sporting fish. The Rede, North Tyne, Coquet, Wear and Ettrick all offer good opportunities to catch some excellent wild brown trout.
In the past grayling have been a fringe fish for us but we now have some very good grayling fishing. The Wear, Ettrick, Whiteadder and Till all have good stocks and we have caught grayling to 4lb. Even the Border Esk has produced some excellent grayling.
We have extensive opportunities for night fly fishing for sea-trout as well as areas that have never really been fished at night. These are still to be discovered.
We encourage new members to come and join us. Our fees are very reasonable and we offer many excellent venues to enjoy. While the last few seasons have been leaner in catches as well as giving us difficult weather and river conditions we anticipate an improvement this year.
Our yearly membership amounts to little over the cost of a day on some rivers. For visiting anglers it means being able to visit whenever they like. Limited time can obviously mean less opportunity to catch the best conditions and runs of fish. Being a season member, can mean being able to come when you like and select those favourable times ; which a pre-selected week often misses out on.
We also have several trout lakes offering good sport all year round and these are inclusive of membership.
We fish the following rivers: Tyne, North Tyne, South Tyne, River Rede, Wear, Coquet, Till, Ettrick, Tweed, Whiteadder and Border Esk as well as having access to the Ribble and Hodder in Lancashire.
Cost for membership is £295 plus a £50 joining fee.
