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 July 2021.
1st, river levels remain very low but clear, no algae problems as yet. There has been some good trout fishing during the daytime with fish up to three pounds reported, mainly falling to nymphs. The evening time is very special just before dark with much activity from all species. There are quite a few salmon about now in the lower reaches and not travelling very far upstream with the low water. Sea trout fishing at night is really starting to pick up with fish coming in from the tides along with salmon.
2nd, a couple of salmon caught today from the lower river, trout fishing is good.
3rd two salmon reported from the lower river today at ten and twelve pounds, some nice fish showing and numbers building.
5th, a slight rise of water of a couple of inches from heavy showers putting a little fresh in with a slight colour, maybe not enough to get fish to run up the system yet. Two fish reported, a fifteen pound salmon for David Airey and a fourteen pound fish for Matt Forsythe from the lower river.
6th, a six pound fish for Peter Robinson, a twelve pound fish from Warwick hall and a fourteen pound salmon from just above Carlisle.
7th, water level at three inches with a slight colour, the trout fishing has slowed today with that small rise of level. A few fish coming in off the tide at mid-day on the lower river and look to be running. A fourteen pound salmon caught from Warwick Hall today on the fly.
9th, two grilse from Warwick hall and a twelve pound fish for Jon Britton on the lower river.
11th, a very overcast day with light rain in the morning, the sea trout, brown trout and grayling fishing was on fire today until the skies cleared and the sun came out.
12th, the odd salmon being caught, most productive times now are very early and late with the bright skies.
14th, a six pound grilse from Warwick Hall fishery today, the grilse should start to come in numbers shortly all being well.
15th, the river remains at summer height, temperatures in the daytime reaching 25oC with light westerly’s.
16th, fishing light and small is getting some results with the salmon and sea trout in the thin water.
20th, a hot week with air temperatures in the high twenties and east winds, plenty of fish on the lower river and the sea trout and brown trout fishing very good at present. No salmon getting caught above Carlisle with the low water, plenty of fish in the deeper pools waiting for the rise of levels.
27th, river level is now at minus four inches and getting warm at nearly 20oC, quite a few salmon and sea trout on the lower beats with fish going back and forth with the tides. The water now has a slight algae bloom and with the higher water temperatures the fish activity is slowing down. Heavy rain is due tonight which will drop the water temperature if that happens, but if there is a lift of levels it will be a dirty one initially.
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.
