Our latest newsletter outlining details of the AGM has been posted to members today. Included are details of how to book the new beat on the river Tweed, our new Bio Security Policy, instructions for using the boats safely on Crag Lough and last years catch returns. All the additions for your handbook are numbered and should be placed in your book accordingly. Whilst the catch returns are down on the previous two years they did not turn out as bad as expected considering the weeks, or should that be months, when our rivers were not in good fishing order. New leases have been secured for the Coquet and late last week we secured another 5 year lease for Crag Lough. Depending on events this week we may be issuing another brief newsletter within the next fortnight but we will keep members informed of updated events as usual via the postal system.

We always keep a look out for the latest fish catches on the Tyne and Coquet to hopefully give an indication as to how things are shaping up. As I write I am not aware of any fish being caught on either of these rivers. Whilst this is not unusual for the Coquet following some very lean years there has as yet been no fish caught on the Tyne system which is odd after nearly three weeks of the season.
