Working in partnership with Gateshead Council and The Tyne Rivers Trust the club is hosting an open day on Sunday 17th July from 10.00-3.00pm at Rowlands Gill Caravan Park. As part of National Fishing Month we will have fully qualified ADB coaches offering instruction and a range of fun activities free of charge. All ages and abilities are welcome so just turn up and have a go!
The river continues to fish well and those anglers staying on the banks until last light have had some real success. Some pools that appear empty suddenly become alive with rising fish! Both brown and black sedge patterns continue to be effective and rises to these patterns are usually explosive!
Some remarkable returns from the last couple of weeks including Peter Laws taking 25 browns and 3 grayling in a day on the lower stretch with two of those fish around the 2lb mark. Michael McDermott taking 10 all on dries and Andrew Sowerby from Hardys Greys fishing on a day ticket had a memorable day returning 8 fish including the one below. He also lost a fish which looked to be around the 3lb mark which was awfully unlucky as he was on for a while before slipping the hook!
