Aye Rob , but the Tyne has an active restocking programme from its Hatchery at Kielder, also before the netsmen were stopped in the estuary, they were catching so many sea trout that they couldn't get a price for them and that is only 2 years back,the river has made a miraculous recovery, easgach 1

Excellent news then :)

Have you considered the Cannich area Rob :?

H :cool:

I have stayed in Cannich a few times on fishing trips, fishing Mullardoch, well, below the dam, and Loch Meikle before hitting Ness around Drumnadrochit.

Meets most criteria except the speaking English bit... ;)

I have a feeling we will end up in Spean Bridge as per normal, and then branch out from there.

Go cane....they even creak when at full curve :)

They are too pricey and don't look half as cool as the Epics!

My thinking is that if the data were from catch returns, the Tyne figures could be skewed in favour of the salmon.

My theory would be that the Tyne is fished by Game anglers and the methods employed are often salmon specific. There are a few other rivers where coarse anglers are the main anglers and often salmon go unreported.
