Take 3 For The Wear

Wear Anglers Association has launched a campaign to help to free our river of pollution and litter. Please see the poster below which is pretty self-explanatory.

The message is simple, if each of us picks home and disposes correctly of THREE pieces of rubbish each time we visit the river bank we CAN and WILL make a difference.

Single use plastic is a huge issue in the media spotlight at the moment and there is no doubt that it blights our river banks but every other piece of litter does likewise and threatens our sport. So please … Take Three For The Wear.

The River Tees Salmon Fishing Survey

There is to be a River Tees ‘salmon fishing survey’ over two days on the last weekend in October.

The idea is to get as many rods as possible to fish on one or both of these two days and record catches etc with a view to putting the results to the EA.

The fishing would be free and details of the beats available and registration details will be available soon. Put the dates in your diary and watch this space for further info.

Salmon fishing and salmon stocks are subjects dear to our hearts but its fair to say under threat unless positive people take positive action, including putting meaningful information to the EA. The Tees has its own unique issues and any help putting together a clear picture will be invaluable.

Reminder: Guest Tickets

We have this season introduced Guest Tickets on a trial basis.

The aim is to add a little extra value to your membership by allowing each member two guest tickets per season and so allowing the opportunity to take a friend fishing on our waters. The great opportunity is to introduce someone new to the great world of Game Fishing, maybe learn to cast a fly for the 1st time, but the opportunity is also there to treat a friend to a day’s fishing as your guest.

We imagine that some of these visitors may join the club in due course but it will give everyone the chance to treat a friend or two.

We will review the scheme at the end of the season and all being well at the AGM we will look at continuing in the future.

For full details of how to use the scheme please go to the membership page,

Salmon Run

We are now receiving reports of Salmon catches.

The recent lift in the river level has brought fish through, by all accounts in large numbers. As you might expect fish have been waiting for this fresh water and have made the most of conditions.

We’ve had a very quiet summer while the water has been so low though those who did fish for Trout have reported some excellent fish.

What better time than the present to take a gust to the water.
