Langley Dam has grown to become one of the most popular fly fishing venues in the north east of England. Langley Dam is 8 miles west of Hexham, just off the A69 on the B6305. The 14 acre fishery offers variety from the boat or bank fishing, particularly if you take set of waders with you. The peaty water runs from the Northumbrian moorland and reaches a maximum depth of 10 feet. Small traditional fishing fly patterns and lures tend to do well. A Dawsons Olive or Catâ€™s Whisker can usually help you avoid blanking on a tough day.
Rainbow Trout and Blue Trout fish are stocked regularly from 2lb upwards. The fly fishing lodge is adjacent to the car park has tea and coffee making facilities plus tackle to buy or hire and a fine selection of North Country fishing flies. With only four boats booking is a must particularly at weekends. Telephone Langley Dam on (01434) 688846 for a great day fly fishing in beautiful surroundings.
A tip for you when fly fishing at Langley Dam… The water was once a course fishery, stocked with a variety of species including Carp. If you fish near the reeds at Langley, either from the boat or the bank you are likely to be excited by the site of apparently large Rainbow Trout breaking the surface in an almost ever present rise. This distracts many a fly fishing enthusiast, keen on landing a prize trout. It is more likely to be one of the few Carp that remain!
