Looking forwards we are pretty optimistic for the 2022 Spring as we have been seeing more fish even from February, it seems that the cycle could be changing and rods need to take note that April and with water May fish are about. Early in the season our Tyne springers are the legendary big shouldered fish the river is famed for. Fishing for these requires patience and persistence Ive witnessed quite a few lost after long long battles (you are warned). The beat has had some whoppers over the years some up to 36lb and a 19lb Sea Trout, twenties are by no means unusual and mostly they are in the mid teens. We have only been fairly lightly fished in the past 2 springs since the opening of the beat to new rods and ending the syndicate fishing. Get in touch and who knows could you be lucky?? I for one will be trying my hand in 2022 as the improvement work on the Estate has now stabilised allowing for more time to enjoy the place!

Your 2 or 3 day course will include refreshments a hearty lunch and attentive assistance balanced with a chance to try for a Tyne Salmon ( we have had new people actually catch their first ever salmon on Farnley and it led to a lifetimes addiction.... the tug is the drug !! Our next course is in the Spring of 2022 mid April at £600 per head for three days or £400 for two including exclusive salmon fishing each day (excluding accommodation, which can be arranged) all tackle if needed , handouts and world class tuition FFI qualified Barry Mitchell the best global qualification .(call Barry 07979023301 and enquire)

On the lakes we welcome local people to our small and friendly syndicate. We are also helping people wishing to start fly fishing(we have magnificent lakes stocked and maintained with newly upgraded facilities for 2019). we work hard to keep the future of fly fishing alive and vibrant introducing youngsters, ladies and gentlemen of all ages to this engrossing pastime. In October 2019 a family of two brothers popped up from London, Cornwall and joined their father from London! They got very lucky in our new spring lake catching some absolute top quality fish. Get in touch if your interested in a 2 or 3 day trip to our 15 acres of lightly fished lakes min 3 rods max 6. In 2021 have had various new visiting trout fans that enjoyed the lakes for the first time catching some excellent full finned specimens and enjoying our wildlife.


Our lucky guests enjoy superb access to the main Tyne river on genuine fly water. Our part of the Tyne is capable of delivering world class sport for salmon in most conditions throughout the season. We cant promise success but the steady runs we experience as a quality lower beat mean you will see fresh fish and should hook something! Last season was a fairly challenging year and most people seemed to hook something or land a fish , with plenty of fish in the beat. The freezing and wet spring this year somewhat dented early sport.
