What could be more relaxing than fly-fishing in what some call England’s last wilderness? It’s a perfect way to forget about the stresses and strains of everyday life.
The rivers Tyne and Coquet are fisheries of national importance and have a growing international reputation as great places to fish. The Tyne is now known as England’s premier salmon river.
All our major rivers offer fantastic fly-fishing opportunities, but a day on the banks of the Coquet or the Tweed may result in a haul of brown and sea trout.
