More salmon rods added for The River Tyne

Mar 16, 2011 | Blog

The 2010 Season at Bywell on the Tyne has turned out to be a bumper year with 343 Salmon and 34 Sea-trout. Bywell Fishing on the Tyne in Northumberland has long been described as the best fishing beat in England and these catches along with the 5 year averages of 247 confirm this claim. Today we have uploaded more availability.

The river at Bywell comprises 2.5 miles (4km) of river with a fine mixture of long fast running powerful pools flowing into good tail runs along with one or two longer stretches of slower water which fish well during high water levels.

There are 12 main named pools and others during high water conditions. Fishing on the river will be on a 2-beat system with 4 rods on each beat rotating daily.

Much of the river flows through Bywell Hall Park in total privacy. A full-time Ghillie, Gary Hillary, has joined us from the Dee, along with assistant Ghillie Chris Richardson so that each 4 rod party will have a Ghillie in attendance. Further ghillie assistance can be provided by arrangement
