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.

Lower and middle river Eden report for January 2021.
A very wet and windy week and big water to start the new salmon season for 2021. The river levels rose over four and a half metres and spilling into the fields due to the storm Christoph. A few kelts caught above Carlisle as the water began to drop and clear, but nothing in the way of a spring fish reported yet. The water level on the 25th was at two and a half feet and dropping to two feet by the end day of the month, not ideal!
Lower and middle river Eden report February 2021.
It was quite a high water for the beginning of February due to copious amount of rainfall; a dry but very cold spell from the east on its way which should drop water levels.
10th, the river is now at a good fish-able height for the fly. There are not many anglers out fishing on the water due to the current Covid restrictions, when these are lifted I think that we will see some action.
21st, a massive rise of water to 3.5m and the river into the fields, more poor weather due which will effectively end any hopes of fishing until the start of March. Not the best of starts to the new salmon season so far with the weather conditions and Covid restrictions, but something to look forward to as the best is yet to come!
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.
