Welcome to Westwater Fly Fishing Club

Westwater Angling is a fly fishing club with private bank and boat fishing on two superb 125 acre lakes at Hallington, approximately 8 miles north of Corbridge in Northumberland. Regularly stocked with hard-fighting, fully-finned rainbow and brown trout, these waters offer the angler, novice or expert, something very different; something quieter, a haven away from the pressure, competitiveness and sometimes crowded atmosphere of pay-by-the-hour venues. Members may fish as often as they like and for as long as they like, restricted only by open season dates, opening hours & catch limits. The Hallington fishery, managed by Westwater Angling for over 45 years, provides a very special environment; quiet, peaceful and tranquil, where

fishing can be enjoyed at its very best, in the heart of some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.

We have a beautiful fishing lodge overlooking the lakes with a comfortable lounge, a well-equipped kitchen and ladies and gents toilets.

The Fishery Manager, John Irving, is based at Hallington and has 45 years’ fishery experience with Westwater. John is regularly available for advice, and the club can also provide professional coaching.

The 2018 subscription for full membership is £599. This may be paid in instalments and is charged pro-rata for new members joining mid-season (April to October).
