The River Rede is the major tributary of the River North Tyne flowing from Carter Bar through the wilds of northern Northumberland, the border country and National Park before finally reaching the North Tyne at Redesmouth. This is a fantastic, and rare, opportunity to fish some of the catchment’s best water on a day ticket. The Stobbs to Bagraw beat has a great selection of easy wide open water to challenging overhanging trees – ideal to get you started on trout fishing, and to keep you interested!
