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.

It looks at this point that there will be no more fishing on the river until further notice due to non-essential travel restrictions.
Any reports or pictures of Eden fish or events, please let me know and I will put them on the 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.
