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.
Fishing permit included with guiding and instruction,
all equipment can be supplied if needed.

River Eden report September.
2nd, river level one foot. Four salmon for Phil Holland above Carlisle up to 8 pound today, one four pound grilse for Peter Robinson below Carlisle.
4th, two foot rise of water with colour in the afternoon, six fish reported today.
5th, Phil Holland 8 pound fish above Carlisle along with a few more salmon landed as the water drops and clears.
6th, Water dropping and clearing, Phil Holland 7 pound fish from middle Eden, Peter Robinson 4 pound grilse below Carlisle and a 20 pound salmon. A few fish caught above Carlisle to 14 pound.
10th, fish caught above and below Carlisle the last few days, water continues to slowly drop, there are still plenty of grilse in the lower and middle river, most with colour now. The odd brighter fish showing up along with one or two bigger salmon in the high teens. No sign of a serious Autumn run just yet but still enough fish about to give anglers sport. River just under one foot at present, a good fly water.
11th, a couple of salmon in the mid-teens caught today, rain overnight.
12th, a one foot lift of water level with colour today.
14th, a few salmon to 12 pounds caught above Carlisle, water is clearing now with more settled weather on the way.
15th, water just below one foot and clear, a few fish caught but little showing today. Robin Melley had a 6 pound fish below Carlisle on the fly and a few fish above Carlisle caught, most salmon recently caught are mostly coloured and not much sign of an Autumn run just yet.
18th, salmon continue to oblige anglers in the right place at the right time over the last couple of days to the fly with the the good conditions at present. Matt Forsyth fishing the fly below Carlisle had three fish to 15 pound, downstream three more salmon reported today and a couple above Carlisle. One or two "new" fish are starting to show themselves now at last, there is hope for a "back-end" run yet!
23rd, a few salmon in the teens and up to 20 pound upstream of Carlisle caught, poor weather on the way.
24th, river on the rise with colour.
25th, two foot and rising.
27th, three foot with much colour, very big tides on the way and more heavy rain forecast over the next few days which will curtail any fishing.
River Eden report October.
Massive fluctuations of water levels with much colour from the constant low pressure systems that seem to never end coming through the county. Anglers out on the the water in between floods are getting a few fish, especially well upstream of Carlisle. I have had a few reports of fish this week, Alan Sephton 7 pounds fish from Lazonby on the 4th and Phil Holland 5th at four pounds. There have been salmon up to twenty pounds caught above Carlisle, I have not heard if the fish were fresh or long term residents yet regarding the state of the back-end run this year. The forecast is set for more rain again for the last week of the season, keeping an already swollen river on the big side. A few fish to 16 pounds caught on the last three days of the season all on the middle river where the water was dropping and clearing, just too big on the lower river. That is that for us on the Eden until January 15th.
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.
