River Tyne, Chesters

Why fish the Tyne System?

Statistically, the Tyne gives you the best chance of landing a salmon in England and Wales. There are few better rivers for a shorter trip, especially if you live down south and travelling to Scotland seems like too far. Most years, the fish counter at Riding Mill sees over 30,000 salmon pass. This is remarkable when you consider that the River Tyne was in dire shape not so long ago during its industrial heyday. Between the South Tyne, North Tyne, and the main river, there is a massive variety of water. Each river differs hugely in character and offers something different. Because the three rivers are rarely more than half an hours drive from one another, you can fish all three over one trip with complete ease.

One advantage of fishing the Tyne system is that the North Tyne is fed from Kielder Water. Weekly releases from Kielder water keep the level topped up in the North Tyne and main river so even if there has been no rain there is always the chance of a fish.

River Eden Cumbria Fly Fishing, Tufton Arms Cumbria, Cumbria Salmon Fly Fishing, Cumbria Trout Fly fishing

Why fish the River Eden?

The River Eden is a scenic playground full of wonderful fly fishing opportunities. Through its length the fly fishing on the River Eden offers a wide and varied experience. Each section offers a different challenge. From tight rock pools and canyon shoots to sweeping riffles. Fly fishing in Cumbria can be a great standalone trip or an excellent way of extending a trip north to Scotland.

While the River Eden is not known to hold huge numbers of salmon it is known to hold some very large fish. In Spring most of the salmon landed tend to be upwards of double figures with twenty plus pound fish not being uncommon. One other string in the River Edens bow is that the beats tend to be large, especially in the middle part of the river. Because of this the water often sees less than on many other rivers. Good fishing can be had all the way until the close of the season in October. Although at this time of the season it is more often the case to luring rather than shocking salmon onto the fly. If the salmon fishing is not firing on all cylinders it is always worth a cast for trout, as the River Eden in one of the finest wild trout fisheries in the country.
