Welcome to Westwater Fly Fishing Club
Westwater Fly Fishing Club 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 55 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.
