The fishing is arranged in 3 day lets (some lucky people take the full 6 for their friends !)  and its a 3 rod salmon beat as a full let we welcome the discerning angler and their party. We would ask that as least day 1 you use our guide Barry Mitchell to understand the beat and flies, he is local very reasonable and we get very positive feedback Barry can be contacted on 07979023301.

There are sometimes day lets, these are always short notice allowing a two week window look ahead , please note for day let guide is mandatory and a minimum of 2 rods. We do not permit any other access during a 3 or 6 day lets as the beat is all yours alone. Farnley Estate  encourage fly fishing and its really good fly water, spinning is allowed when the rock is covered opposite the fishing hut or rods are elderly and still keen ! and fly fishing is no longer an option. The pools are generally easy wading but bring a stick, life preserver and a net large enough for big salmon (PLEASE !! We have seen so many large fish lost over the years because of people not owning a proper SALMON NET with a deep net bag and large net bow ! take note ) , the average fish weights on the Tyne are probably the best in the UK so remember salmon are not shy do not fish light.

If you are interested just call 07733389474 John R or drop us a mail on and we will see what is available in our diary. Please be aware demand is high on the main Tyne and the beat is quite well known so don’t delay, please note we don’t permit booking the beat through any third parties. You can also call Edward Of Hexham and ask for Graeme 07967606592, please support our local businesses where you can he has a fine establishment only 4 miles west of the estate ! Gear can also be hired so perhaps the thought of not having to lunk your gear , jump on the train to Newcastle or Plane and its all there ready to go ??

A deposit of £200 secures your let and we can arrange refreshments, Taxi , guides and barbeques if needed! If the river is flooded or bone dry we can offer fishing on the lakes for additional fee, we may even be able to put on some clays if the fancy takes you.

Do you fancy doubling up your chances in sept and oct ?? In 2017 we have something rather exciting to offer at the back end we are twinning up with Upper Caberston on the Tweed and can offer a Tyne/Tweed combination… does that sound ?! contact me on 07733389474 or OR Upper Caberston

The partners and friends have fished up there and always had a great time. John Miller is a fine host and Steve the Ghillie cannot be beaten for his fun and really cares that you get something …oh and the location and lodge is top quality!
