Guided Fly Fishing

At 'The Eden Angler' we provide guided fly fishing trips from a full-time professional guide on the rivers Eden, Eamont and Lowther in North Cumbria. Access can be arranged to many stretches of these rivers, including private waters that limit the number of anglers, which will often give you, or your party exclusive access.

Rainbow trout fishing can also be arranged on many of our smaller stocked fisheries in the area.
