The River Tyne - A Continuing Success Story

Recent Environment Agency statistics have endorsed the River Tyne system as the most productive river in England and Wales, with over 7,500 salmon and sea trout caught last season.

At Land Factor we are involved in the management of more beats up and down the river than any other firm of agents.  We handled the last sale of fishing rights on the river at the Acomb Watersmeet in 2008.  We have an immense depth of expertise within the business which covers lettings, valuations and project management.

Salmon fishing has developed into a major draw for tourism in the North East, with packages now available on a daily or weekly basis in a season which extends from February through to the end of October.  This provides much needed employment for ghillies and other maintenance staff, as well as supporting overnight accommodation, local fishing shops and the wider rural economy. 

Over recent years, both capital and rental values have continued to grow, through a combination of increasing catch records and a continuing scarcity in the marketplace.

The re-emergence of the Tyne as a salmon river was initiated by the general clean up of industrial pollution downstream.  However, the development process has only been possible through high levels of management at every level; from the creation of a fish hatchery as part of the Kielder Reservoir project, through to the setting up of the Tyne Rivers’ Trust to promote and safeguard the interests of the river. 

At Land Factor we have a unique insight into the workings of the river which comes through our involvement in the management of numerous riparian estates.  We deal with fully supervised daily lettings through to long-term rental agreements to individuals and syndicates.  In the background to the actual catching of fish, we are also immersed in habitat management through sensitive general husbandry and in setting up habitat-improving agri-environment schemes.

Hugo Remnant has wide experience in all aspects of fishing through his work in managing riparian estates, overseeing environmental schemes, as a trustee of the Tyne Rivers Trust and as a fisherman.  If you need any advice about fishing, please do not hesitate to contact Hugo Remnant  who would be happy to discuss any issues you may have.
