More River Tyne beats on FishPal

Apr 4, 2012 | Where To Fish

We are pleased to announce that Dilston Fishing on the River Tyne is now on FishPal.

The Dilston fishings are on the right bank of the Tyne immediately upstream of the village of Corbridge. The beat was made famous by A H Chaytor who fished it with great success at the beginning of the 20th century.

Chaytor’s experiences here formed the basis for his salmon fishing classic, “Letters to a Salmon Fisher’s Sons”.

Dilston fishing is just over two and a half miles of the main river commencing with some excellent fly water at the upstream, western, limit. With good quality water throughout the beat, there are excellent opportunities for the angler at varying water heights.

Availability starts at £40 per rod rising to £90 in Autumn, for the famous River Tyne back-end run of salmon. In 2011, the Dilston beat caught over 200 salmon along with 40 sea trout.
