Conditions of Purchase

Tuition and fishing experiences are done either on a half day or full day/s

Tuition and fishing experiences are offered either on a half-day or full day/s basis on the various private beats I use on the lower/middle River Eden.

You will get the full benefit from the day on a one-to-one basis.

If there are two people, the day rate cost is split: half each. Only one may be in the water at any time unless you purchase a second permit (optional @ £50). This works well because you will learn as much by watching and doing other things while resting.

There is a £50 deposit payable per person to secure a date in the diary. This is non-refundable, to cover any fishing permits.

Gift vouchers are valid for twelve months but can be extended with prior notice.

Included in the cost is a one fishing permit, loan of equipment, tuition, tea/coffee and photos. The cost does not include E.A rod licenses if you want to fish.

Should the river be unfishable

If the Eden is unfishable due to a flood or severe weather conditions, or you cannot attend due to personal circumstances, the day will be re-scheduled or if possible and agreeable, adjusted to include casting tuition only.

If there are two or more anglers for the scheduled day and extra permits have been purchased, the cost of those permits is non-refundable. This is standard all over the UK, as the owners of the beat must be paid in advance for the fishing’s.  I will not charge for my time that day.

Safety is of paramount importance, and although accidents do sometimes happen in life, I will ensure to the best of my ability and experience that there are no disasters. Please do let me know if there is anything I should know about before you arrive, i.e: medical/mobility or any other problems that might give cause for concern.

It is advisable to book as early in the year as possible. The River Eden and the tuition/experiences we offer are very popular during spring, summer and autumn.

You can practice salmon or trout casting on the river out of season, providing you have permission and use a piece of wool instead of a fly on your leader. Get your casting skills up to speed for when the season starts!
