"This is the story of a once-great salmon river threatened by industrial pollution in the nineteenth century and apparently wrecked beyond recall by the 1950's. Now reborn, after a major cleansing effort, its waters are probably cleaner than at any time this century and are host to thousands of returning salmon, which spawn again in the upper reaches". A fascinating history of special interest to salmon and trout anglers. Chapters include:- Newcastle salmon; The killing of the tidal Tyne: 1800-1930; A managed, cleaner, salmon river; Anglers on the main Tyne; The Lead Dales; The source. An appendix lists local angling associations and where to obtain licenses.
