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 Eden report for October 2020.
1st, a clear rise in water levels to one foot this afternoon after rain the day before. Not as busy on the river as the last day of September was, one fish for Warwick Hall, one for Low House of ten pounds and a scattering of fish from the lower river to the middle. A few fresh sea trout came in on the tide today along with a couple of what looked like very clean fish.
2nd, water level one foot two inches. Two fish to eleven pounds off Warwick hall today taking them to over one hundred fish caught this season. Some big salmon landed on the river today of twenty pound plus and a few in the teens of pounds, it makes you wonder where all these large fish have been laying up all summer before heading upstream triggered by the water temperature drop. Poor weather on the way tonight which may scupper any notion of fishing over the weekend.
3rd, huge rise in water levels to four metres.
5th, water level four feet. Four fish reported to fifteen pounds on the middle river.
6th, water level two foot six with colour. A few salmon from the middle river to fourteen pounds and one from Warwick Hall at fifteen pounds.
7th, water level just over two foot, a few salmon to fourteen pounds from the middle beats today. One week left of the salmon season!
8th, water level just under two foot but more rain overnight has risen the river in the afternoon with colour. A few salmon caught from the lower and middle river today, the biggest eighteen pounds from Low House.
9th, water level two foot five inches, eight salmon reported from the middle river to fourteen pounds.
10th, water level two foot six inches, a fifteen pound salmon from Warwick hall and ten fish to twenty pounds from the middle river today. A twenty pound salmon for Low House.
11th, water level two foot eight inches and clear. Several fish reported from the middle river today, a seventeen pound salmon for Alan Sephton from Lazonby Estate, three fish from Warwick Hall to thirteen pounds and a few upstream from the middle river, two fish from the lower river.
12th, water level one foot ten inches, Twenty salmon reported today up to twenty pounds, Warwick Hall had a fresh fish and there were five lost, Paul White on the lower river had a seventeen pound fish and many others from both lower and middle river today.
13th, A few fish reported, not as busy as the day before but salmon about.
14th, the last day of the Eden salmon season finished on a good note with twenty fish reported to twenty three pounds today. One salmon of eight pounds from Warwick Hall and quite a few caught upstream of them and a couple of fish below. All in all a short but very good season on the river with a very good stock of spring and summer fish this year entering the river from early April through to to mid-August, some big fish in June came in and a good grilse run in July. A dribble of autumn fish coming in recently, but not the run there used to be, it seems to be the same story on every river the last few years. Verdict, same again next season please!
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.
