    The Tyne is fairly peaty most of the time.

    A certain Springer, past of these parts, advised me when i started salmon fishing that I could not go far wrong with Ally Shrimps and Cascades in size 6 and 8.

    A local fly, the Simply Red, also does well. Search for the pattern on this site?

    Most of my success over the past few seasons has been on smaller flies.

    I have had luck with Orange or Red Firetail Cascades. Member Easky has a sticky video of this in the Step by Steps on SFF.

    Some fish with a smaller dropper, often silver stoat or teal, blue and silver. They are intending to target sea trout but salmon like them too.

    But really when they are on they are on and most flies work!

    Hope this helps.

    Red, red and black, black and yellow covers most of what i use on the tyne. Tyne toucans and red devils seem to be productive.
    Also as above small flies for droppers down to 16 and 18 doubles at times.

    I have had good results with small gold Cascades (12s and 14s) and yellow Allys at this time of year.

    Of course, it is going to be a day or two before any kind of fly will work given the water levels.
