The North Tyne, one of the two sources of the River Tyne, is famous as a Salmon river. Flowing downstream from Kielder dam, its course carries it through beautiful countryside. Haughton Castle is one of the premier fishing beats on the North Tyne with over 2 miles of single bank divided in 2 beats. The passport beat is from ‘The Rack’ down to ‘Ferryman’s Cottage’ at Haughton Castle. With good holding water between fast streams, this is a very interesting beat, offering good stocks of wild brown trout. This is an exceptional opportunity to fish a very private, quality beat.
