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 and we welcome the discerning angler and their party. We ask that as least day 1 you use our excellent and friendly guide Barry Mitchell to understand the beat and flies, he is local very reasonable and we always get very positive feedback. Barry can be contacted on 07979023301. His casting tuition is highly recommended and we say that an hour or so beforehand will greatly improve your visit’s enjoyment, so please ask him about this or think about the evening beforehand and get tuition on our specially built casting platform on the lake! We have already been taking bookings for 2018 and will hold prices if you commit this year, we envisage small price increases for 2018 to help us continue investing in our guests facilities. Even as a very able angler I find having a guide provides company, extends your knowledge and especially as we are getting older a pair of eyes to watch over us because salmon fishing is a challenging sport when conditions change.
There are sometimes day lets, these are always short notice allowing a two week window look ahead , please note for a day let a 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 very 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. Please also buy GOOD QUALITY hooks we have had over 8 big fish lost in 2017 with bent doubles and trebles.
If you are interested just call 07733389474 John R or drop us a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what is available in our diary. Please be aware demand is very 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, we have arranged these successfully in 2017 and all we ask is give us good notice! 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, again give us good notice.
Do you fancy doubling up your chances in oct we still have 3 lets available 16th,19th and 26th why not add three days on the Tweed ?? In Autumn 2018 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…..how does that sound ?! contact me on 07733389474 or email@example.com OR Upper Caberston firstname.lastname@example.org
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! Someone connected to the estate caught a fish over 30lb in 2017, what a battle a fish of a lifetime thanks John and Steve it was an unforgettable experience !!!
