Salmon and Sea trout guided days

After fishing the Tyne for over 20 years and watching it grow from strength to strength and come to understand this river I’m pleased to announce that I am now offering guided days salmon/sea trout fishing on 3 phenomenal stretches of this mighty River. 

What the day consists of

The day starts off with an 8.30am meet at the chosen destination, after a quick introduction, bit of banter and tackle up we are ready to fish for about 9am.  There is no restrictions on lunch time like other beats, we usually stop for maybe 20 minutes around 1.30pm for a bite to eat, then straight back to fishing.  I usually round things up between 5/5.30pm, making sure weve fished all the pools good and hard. 

During the day you will not only learn about the water craft and knowledge required to catch these fish, but also put into practice the numerous casts needed to cover the water and present the fly to this incredible species.  Most importantly itl be a busy fun filled day with hopefully, a silver prize included. 

Guiding fee’s

My guiding fee’s for 2019 are priced at £175 per day (Not including fishing and for 1 person).  I can accommodate up to 4 anglers by myself, there is however a small charge per extra angler of £25 per head, equipment (rod and reel) can also be hired at £25 per day if needed.  There is also availability for corporate days for up to 5/6 people that includes fishing, equipment and extra guides to maximise your chance of silver (Prices can be quoted using the contact form).

Please note that you will personally need to purchase a day salmon fishing licence (only £8)

Warden and other beats fishing fees are as follows =

Warden Fishing fee’s

Feb 1st  – June 9th = £35 per person per day (£210  guided)

June 10th – June 30th = £50 per person per day (£225 guided)

July 1st – July 28th = £60 per person per day

July 29th – Aug 25th = £65 per person per day

Aug 26th – Oct 31st = £80 per person per day

Warden fishing offers anglers 4 stunning beats of between 1000 and 1700 meters covering both the North and South Tyne rivers with an average of  7 named pools per beat and numerous hidden runs which consist of both single and double bank access for fly and spinning.

2018 saw 34,098 fish recorded through the riding mill fish pass on the Main Tyne, and even with bad conditions produced a good year for the Warden stretches totalling 262 migratory fish being caught (162 salmon and 100 sea trout).

Prices vary throughout the year and increase as the months go on with the fishing really starting to get going from May onwards, although salmon can be caught as early as April they are few and far between due to being half way upstream on the river system.

Other Tyne beats

Along with the incredible warden stretches I’ve fished on all my life and successfully guided on over the last few years (please check my blog) I also offer guiding at Dilston on the main tyne which gives an angler a great chance of a spring fish from March onwards, also a huge number of fish throughout the season.  Another very productive stretch I also guide on is the stunning Lambley stretch situated high up on the south tyne that later in the season gets rammed with fish and can often save the day when the rest of the river system is in flood.

Here’s a small taster of some of the fish caught by my guests in 2018 off our beats, and i hope to see you soon!
