The Lake District is a magically beautiful region of high peaks, open fells, lakes and sparkling rivers that offers some tremendous fishing amidst scenery that is both spectacular and often surprisingly intimate.And, away from the popular centre, Cumbria also has quieter, far less frequented areas with unique qualities all of their own. The Eden Valley, the West Cumbrian coast and the western parts of the Yorkshire Dales all fall within our boundaries. These areas are no less scenic and still hold waters that, by today's standards,remain relatively underfished.
Wherever you plan to fish in Cumbria we hope you find this website the perfect starting point.
