24 August

Fishing reports continue to arrive and member Trevor Harrison from Pudsey in West Yorkshire had a successful week on the Tyne at Bellingham last week catching three salmon to 20lb and one sea trout at 5.5lb. All the salmon were caught on the fly using his favourite cone head patterns.

Whilst most of our rivers are fishing well especially following all the rain over the last two weeks one point that seems to be concerning members is the shortage of fish taking the Coquet especially the number of sea trout. We can only see how the season continues to see if there is a problem with this particular river.
