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. The Chesters is a famous beat situated below Chollerford Wer and extends down to Walwick Grange. The Passport beat includes both banks from Upper Island to Hodley Banks. With good streams and holding water containing good stocks of specimen dace and the occasional chub, ‘The Chesters’ offers a splendid opportunity to fish a very private beat.
