    I fished this water earlier in the week, while visiting family nearby.

    What a river! Lovely fishable water, plenty of sea trout holding runs and pools and clearly full of substantial fish. I caught 2, both 22", I also had around 5 pulls and saw a monstrous fish jumping.

    I will be back!

    Couple of good fish there Tom. Holywell is my favourite stretch of the river, can be very productive!

    I used to have a ticket on the Chester-Le-Street water quite a few years ago, didn't make the most of it as I was in a bit of a maritial turmoil , ended up jacking it up, wish I hadn't
    I had some good fish, the Wear is renowned for its Sea Trout, hooked a biggy one night and it just led me a merry dance up and down, A mate who was a regular on the river saw the fish come to the surface and quoted its the biggest Sea Trout he had ever seen and wouldn't have gone in the net, he estimated it at around the 20lb mark. He often referred to these large Sea Trout as Bullies, How true he was. Been a long time since I last chucked a line, but that's gonna change this year, I've got to get back to it, I miss it too much.
    What's the score on getting a ticket on BA waters.

    Regards Cumbrian Blue

    You can download an application form on the web site Membership Application - BADAC Angling Club
    Its 150 for 2019. Alternatively day permits are available through fishpal.
    There are some big sea trout that run the Wear. I had an 8lb fish last season and also a 16lb salmon. Given the right conditions the fishing can be superb.

    It will be interesting to see this season if the closure of the North East drift nets improves the number of fish running the North East rivers. For some reason T & J nets for sea trout are being allowed to continue.

    I just wish I got there early enough to have more of a look around, I limited myself (very happily in the end) to one small pool and a run. Would happily spend 3 nights familiarising myself with just this beat.

    150 is ludicrously good value. This is a top class river at bargain bucket prices. If only I were closer...

    Many thanks I could be very well tempted
