Designed with anglers in mind, islands and underwater features were formed to provide fish-holding areas and the lakes landscaped using thousands of lilies, reeds, aquatic plants to provide fish sanctuaries Wildflowers, trees, hedging and shrubs provide both attractive features and wildlife sanctuaries in this extremely pretty part of Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.

Great care has also been taken to ensure that the water quality in our fisheries is kept optimum. The intense aquatic planting allows shelter for the fish but these aquatic plants will need time to mature so please take care on the bankside and do not damage them. They are essential for the habitat and aquaculture providing the fish with ample areas of cover, spawning sites and rich feeding. We aim to keep it that way - our policy of safeguarding fish health is your assurance of good sport, no matter what species you catch.

Training is provided by set courses on set days all year. We can also offer one to one tuition. All tuition and courses must be pre-booked for both the novice and experienced angler to help you to get the best out of your visits.
