Suspension of grayling day tickets for 2010 season

The association have sadly reached the decision to suspend day tickets for the 2010 grayling winter season due to the collapse in grayling stocks since the 2009 pollution incident. We feel we cannot in all honesty ask people to fish for what is not there in the sort of numbers that would allow any chance of success.

The main areas of concern are from Allensford to Blackhall Mill. We hope to replenish the stock of grayling in this area to bring to the level it was before the pollution incident.

The association are currently continuing with their case against the polluter, Northumbrian Water, and hope to reach an agreement in the near future.We will update the membership and overall fishing community with the situation as it develops.
