Professional fly fishing tuition and guiding for salmon, trout and grayling on the river Eden in Cumbria with Glyn Freeman.

Olive Upright

A very big welcome to Cumbria Fly Fishing!

All sessions and experiences can be tailored to suit your ability, aspirations and requirements. Whether you are just beginning your fly fishing journey or have been ‘on the water’ for many years, there are always truly-wonderful experiences to be had in improving your Spey casts and salmon fishing techniques, or presenting a fly for trout or grayling, in beautiful surroundings.

Cumbria Fly Fishing’s Eden days are safe, friendly and relaxed. They take place in ‘real-life’ fishing situations – not on the grass or a platform. My aim is for you to go away having experienced something special and feeling happy and competent with your new skills.

The most popular days we offer are 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), tuition, guiding and use of any quality tackle and equipment needed; plus photos of your day out. Your fishing will be on private, easily-accessible water in the northern Lake District.

Note: Environment Agency rod licence not included.

Experience are run as half days, full days or over several days. You will see and enjoy some stunning scenery; see Gallery.

There are many residential and non-residential courses for both salmon and trout available, together with fly casting tuition, fly fishing for ladies and casting demonstrations. Think of a date and let us tailor make one for you.
