Fishing Prospects on The River Eden
The trout and salmon season is over, but if you have a hardy disposition then great sport can still be enjoyed on the Eden chasing Grayling right through the winter. Known aptly as the “ladies of the stream” the Eden is famous for its grayling and there is a reference in Rod and Line both to the Tufton Arms (drying out in front of the fire) and fishing for grayling in the snow. Grayling continue to feed in the winter and great sport can be had. Times have moved on from Arthur Ransome and people defrosting themselves, the advent of neoprene waders means that this fishing can be enjoyed in comfort though naturally the fire is still available along with a dram afterwards!! Costs are nominal for grayling fishing with access to many of the best beats on the Eden. Extra special offers on fishing and the hotel direct from Nigel 017683 51593
Our trout fishing breaks and courses make fantastic Christmas presents and birthday presents, we can email gift vouchers, get ready for next season and make somebody else happy!!
We also have our 3 day Salmon Fishing and Speycasting trip from the 23rd to 25th March 2019 at just £695 for 3 nights full board, 3 days fishing at Warwick Hall along with guiding, tuition and equipment hire if needed. Places are limited to just 6 with 2 instructors, great fun, always convivial and a simply marvellous present!
TROUT FISHING ON THE RIVER EDEN
The start of the trout fishing season is March 15th. Two years ago Trevor Heyliger graced the opening day with a monster 6lb ish fish and he is coming back teaching and fishing during the summer, (fish look out!) Hopefully we will get a normal season this year without droughts or the awful east winds in the spring of last year. But even if we do get a drought again we can access beats on the middle river as per previous years where guests have had some wonderful days in simply stunning surroundings.
The Tufton Arms Hotel has been a famous fly fishing destination in Cumbria since Victorian times. Appleby is situated in a large loop of the River Eden, and is surrounded by superb wild brown trout fishing and grayling fishing. We can also offer The River Eamont and the lower and middle River Eden. Whilst fishing in the Lake District with its myriad of options is close by.
Come fly fishing for wild brown trout on some 16 miles of the famous River Eden and it’s tributaries all within close reach of the hotel. Perhaps try bustard fishing in the late evening and into the night for the larger brownies that lurk in the deeper pools. This is somewhat similar to Sea Trout fishing at night and is both a very exciting and rewarding thing to try. It also gives a different twist to any fishing break.
We are very lucky to have some fantastic water along with local flies and a lifetimes expertise from John Pape who has his own water at Ormside. However if you are a total fly fishing beginner and wish to try trout fishing or salmon fishing for the first time we can also offer experienced ghillies for the day, along with loaned equipment and tackle so that you can sample the excitement and see if a fly fishing break is for you at a very reasonable cost.
We also offer both salmon fishing breaks and trout fishing on the middle and lower River Eden. Again we can offer ghillies who are also happy to start you off salmon fishing or indeed speycasting. The Tufton Arms for that fishing break that you deserve. Contact Nigel Milsom direct at the hotel on 017683 51593 to discuss your requirements.
