    Never fished it personally but I did spend a very enjoyable day's fishing with my brother at Caistron trout fishery up near Rothbury a few year back now. Set in beautiful surroundings, we hired a boat for the afternoon and had a few nice fish. Hopefully get back soon but a bit of a treck from Carlisle where I am but makes for a good day out if you set off early.

    Funny thing I just checked and apparently it closed down in 2017 due to an access bridge getting washed away which is a shame as it was a cracking little fishery, ah well I guess I won't be returning anytime soon.

    Really enjoyed an evening at sweethope from the boat. Tricky conditions - light breeze going to flat calm, 10 mins of rising fish then the wind swung 180 degrees and got pretty brisk! Landed one to a cats whisker and had good takes but didn’t properly connect with damsels and dry daddies. Spoke to a couple of local lads who’d also found it hard going and had hooked 5 but only landed 1. Well managed and I’ll defintely go back - nice to see the place again after what is probably a 20 year gap!
