Come and meet us

2015 AGM

Our AGM is being held this Wednesday at Birtley Golf Club with a prompt start at 8.00pm. The club house will be open from 7.00pm and as well as seeing some of our regular members we also look forward to meeting some of our new members. It will give new members the opportunity to meet the committee and other members and also pick the brains of our older members as where are the best places to catch a fish or two. The weather at the moment is fine and current forecasts are to stay cold with the odd snow shower but we expect the roads to be fine for travelling. As usual we will have our hot and cold buffet midway through the evenings agenda and the committee look forward to seeing you there.

Season,s Opener

Open Rivers

Fishing for salmon opened on our English rivers yesterday but we do not expect any early season success on our rivers at this moment in time. Our Tweed and Till beats open from today and with the recent snow we expect the rivers to be out of condition for fishing. Any early season success will come from these rivers and members are strongly advised to check river levels before setting off to fish.

Year End fish Counts

2014 Figures

The final 2014 figures for three of our major rivers are now on the fish counter. The Tyne saw over 31000 fish take the system whislt the Wear had over 12000 and the Tees a paltry few hundred and our thanks to the EA for providing these figures.

Rods at The Ready

Some members are already champing at the bit in preperation for the start of the new season and the best prospects are the Tweed and the Till. Members are reminded that it is fly only until 15th February and high waters of late could produce some sea trout on the Till.
