A very big welcome to Cumbria Fly Fishing!
The sessions and experiences on the river Eden in Cumbria are with Glyn Freeman. They are designed to suit whatever your ability, aspirations and requirements may be, whether you are just beginning or have been fishing for a while. Improving your Spey casts and salmon fishing techniques or presenting a dry fly in beautiful surroundings for trout is a truly wonderful experience.
Days out on the river are done in a relaxed, safe and friendly manner, my aim is for you is to go away competent, happy, with new skills and something special. You will be put in real fishing situations in moving water, (not on the grass or a platform). I can supply free of charge photos of your day out. The most popular days are the one to one sessions or for two people. Included in the cost is a fishing permit for one person, (for one extra fishing add £50). Also included in the cost is the tuition, guiding and use of any quality tackle and equipment needed if you do not have any, it is on private water on the river Eden in the Northern Lake District and easily accessed.
The experience is run as a half day, a full day or a series of days. You will see and enjoy some stunning scenery (see gallery), please call or email to arrange an outing. You can also purchase a gift voucher for a special person.
There are also many residential courses for both salmon and brown trout available, fly casting and fishing for ladies, demonstrations, team building and corporate days, think of a date and let us tailor make one for you.

River Eden report May 2021.
3rd, at last, some rain arriving which will give the river a small lift.
4th, a sixteen pound salmon for Warwick Hall today, a few fish seen on the move with the pending rise.
5th, a two foot rise of river level with some colour after heavy showers, a north-west wind and still cool conditions. A twelve pound fish from Warwick Hall today caught on the fly.
6th, water levels now dropping.
7th, river level at ten inches and clear, a thirteen pound fish from above Carlisle.
8th, rain all morning giving a slight rise of water today, a ten and a twelve pound fish from the Carlisle area on the fly.
9th, water level one foot six inches and clear. Carlisle Angling Association reported six fish from their water last week on the 6th and 7th. A thirteen pound fish caught from above Carlisle. This nice clear lift of water will send the smolts on their way to the estuary at last. It is much warmer today with a southerly wind in our direction, so the trout fishing will pick up now, along with the sea trout entering the river.
10th, the river level is now at ten inches and clear with a tint, wind from the south with showers, good hatches and the Hawthorn flies have started. A fresh sixteen pound fish landed from the Lazonby Estates water caught by Alan Sephton today.
11th, two fish reported today eight and fifteen pounds above Carlisle.
12th, river level twelve inches with a slight rise, showers.
13th, water level is now at ten inches with some colour. Three fish, ten, ten and twelve pounds from Warwick hall today, a nine pound salmon from Low House and a twenty four pound fish upstream of Lazonby. Trout fishing still on the slow side while the weather is unstable.
16th, the water level is sitting at six inches, a variable but mainly east wind with heavy showers. Good hatches of olives the last few days and the trout at last are responding, coming to the surface for them. One or two salmon came in off today’s tide at last; let us hope it is the start of the spring run proper.
17th, river level is eight inches, a few salmon caught from the Carlisle area and a few further upstream the last couple of days to fourteen pounds. An eleven pound fish and one lost at Warwick Hall today.
Any reports or pictures of Eden fish or events, please let me know and I will put them on these pages!
Not all fish are reported unfortunately for whatever reason, so it does not give an accurate assessment of what stock there is in the river at any time.
