Come fly with me

Fly is best just now

Pleasing to see that members are still bringing fish to the net. Grilse to seven pounds snd sea trout to six pounds are being caught from our Till and Wear beats and mostly on the fly. The Tyne is producing the odd salmon and sea trout with a few sea trout coming off the Coquet. Normally by now we should be seeing bigger fish entering the rivers but for some reason they are pretty scarce at present. The rivers have settled down at present and more rain is hoped for to freshen things up.

More sad news

Dave Charlton

It is with very deep regret that we have to announce the very sad news that committee member Dave Charlton died last night. Dave had been fighting cancer over the last fifteen months but lost the fight. Our deepest sympathy from the committeee and members goes to all his family at their very sad loss but especially to his two daughters Amber and Grace whom live in America but have spent around twelve months  over here looking after Dave through his illness. We know a lot of members knew Dave from their time in the club and will indeed have spent many an hour or two on the banks with Dave and also fishing for a week on the Tweed at Upper Mertoun. We will post details of his funeral when we receive them, RIP Dave and god bless you and your family.
