    Red does well - Red Devilís, allyís shrimp in deep orange/red, Tyne toucan. Plus the usual suspects

    The Simply Red is a Tyne original pattern, and would be a good starting point - see Simply red

    On the occasions I've fished the North Tyne I've had fish (both salmon and sea trout) on Dinnet Shrimps, Glenfarclases and Red & Copper Allys in sizes 8-12. It's a peaty river and quite bright flies, especially those with red in the dressing, seem to be popular, though I was told that the good old Stoat's Tail still catches its share.
