Yesterday the Tyne opened, perfect day, had a few kelts to Willie Gunns to whet the appetite, haven't heard of any fresh taken yet.
Tweed looking good, there on the 18th Feb.
The Tyne produced four reported fish on opening day. Three to Norman Patterson at Meggs Mill on the Bywell Syndicate water and one came off the Tyneside Anglers Syndicate water below Bywell bridge.
