North East news says the E/A Has the Tyne as the number one Salmon river in England. Number Two is the Wear. Well i hope that in the future the Tees gets the attention it needs from the owners of the Barrage , Britishwaterways and the E/A. The Angling Trust has become involved so lets hope they keep the pressure up . I get told we dont need publicity because the prices will rise. But we cant have a fishing club with half its membership paying these rents. Full membership helps everybody and i have always said BAAC great value for money fishing. The Tees has the fish below that Barrage why do the seal population figures keep riseing. Its not the Seafish they are getting fat on these days, if that was true they wouldnt leave the coast. Lets not forget that other great little river the Yorkshire Esk.
