The River Coquet in Northumberland is an outstanding place for people to take their fishing equipment
and catch brown trout, it has been stated.
According to Journal Live blogger Andrew Gibson, the river - which flows from the Northumberland hills down to the sea near Warkworth - contains "an excellent population of wild brown trout".
He also noted that sea trout and salmon can be caught there.
Most of the trout are between four and six inches long, although larger ones exist, the blogger stated, noting that the lighter evenings have brought an increase in the number of people coming to the river hoping for a catch.
Those catching trout may be looking forward to eating their prize and further evidence has emerged of the health benefits a fishy diet can offer.
An article published in the International Journal of Health Geographics by US researchers said that those living in places where an oily fish diet was common had lower cancer rates.
Orchid Cancer Appeal chief executive of Rebecca Porter responded to this by noting that fish including mackerel and herring can provide extra vitamin D and lower cancer rates as a result.
