The River Tyne rises in the Moorfoot Hills and runs for thirty miles northeast through the county town of Haddington entering the sea at Tyningham just north of Dunbar. The East Lothian Angling Association control 25miles of this river and its feeder burns. The river catchment is now predominantly agricultural with grazing and arable lands along the banks. Some stretches are heavily wooded and shaded. Dredging has been done in the lower reaches over the years and substantial flood berms have been constructed leaving the river to run through a deeply incised channel. The catchment suffered from heavy industrialisation with coal mining and heavy engineering and textile factories works polluting the river for many years. Since the demise of heavy industry and coal mining the river has naturally struggled to return itself to its former state.
