Club History

Felling Fly Fishing Club was founded in 1984 by some 10 people who believed there was a place for a new game fishing club within the region as it was very difficult to gain access to any of the local clubs at that time. Those early days saw plenty of hard work put in by the few members that we had and we acquired our first piece of fishing water later that year, the river Rede, in Northumberland and the main tributory of the north Tyne. In the near 30 years that we have be going we have seen waters come and go, like Tumbleton Lake at Cragside, Blackton Reservoir in north Yorkshire the river Garry on the west coast of Scotland and the river Liddle in Cumbria. Some of the waters we would liked to have retained and others were sacrificed for newer and better fishing for the members.

Our yearly average over the last seven years runs at 250 salmon and 263 sea trout whilst our trout fisheries run at over 3 fish per rod per day. Biggest salmon caught is 31.5lbs and biggest sea trout is 14lb 10ozs. Biggest fish in 2015 at the moment are a salmon at 25lb but beaten by a salmon of 30lb. There are rumours that a 22lb sea trout has been caught this season, but until we receive our catch returns from the members it still remains a rumour.

A new stretch of river fishing has been added in 2016 with the addition of the Shellacres beat on the river Till. We sacrificed a beat on the river Tees for this stretch and this new beat has already produced more migratory fish in the first month than the old beat on the Tees produced in three years. Members that have fished this new beat are saying it is some of the best fly water they have ever fished in their lives.

We constantly provide updates on our news page for members about current fishing conditions unlike other local clubs that only provide links to other bodies or associations but rarely if ever update members on current fishing conditions. We also have a members only forum section where members keep other members up dated with river levels.

We have over 15miles of river fishing, covering most of our major rivers in the region, giving members a wonderful selection of venue for salmon and sea trout fishing plus the two best salmon rivers and the best sea trout river in England. For the angler that also likes to do trout fishing we offer a brown trout fishery and two rainbow trout fisheries. We have a restricted membership level so that overcrowding on the banks of the rivers is never a problem, you could even end up fishing the beat on your own and wonder if we do have other members. If you are interested in joining one of the top angling clubs in the region then please use the membership application form at the top of this page and you may also email us via the "Contact Us" button on the home page.


This is our new website, May 2013, and modifications are continually  being made to offer our members the best information availble plus of course the general public.
