Amazing what water in the rivers can do at this time of year - three days left to season end.

Another report received from Jim Irving this evening reads:-

Jeremy Macbeth caught and returned a salmon of 10lbs from the Eals pool on the Tyne. Another member caught and kept a clean fish of the same weight from the same pool. Jeremy then went to the Rede and his first cast at the bottom of the Ingram pool caught what he thought was a big salmon but it escaped to live another day.

Jim Irving had a blank on the Tyne in the morning despite loads of fish so he also went to the Rede. Nothing from the Ingram down over until the head of the Cliff pool and a nice sea trout of 4lb caught and safely returned
