These beats are believed to be amongst the best on the Eden and indeed, are ranked among the best in England.
Warwick Hall on the River Eden in Cumbria offers 2 beautiful and productive stretches of water for the dedicated fly fisherman. Warwick Hall’s owner, Mr Nick Mariner landed a 27lb spring salmon Friday 3rd March and Mr Andrew Flitcroft Trout & Salmon magazine caught a 17lb spring salmon Monday 5th March.
Andrew Flitcroft say’s ‘I had my first cast of the season on the Eden at Warwick Hall. What a perfect day. There was a hard frost, the water was falling and clear, the sun came out and the daff’s were bursting from their buds. Then, 50 yards down the first pool (House pool) I had a 34 3/4 inch springer. I guess around 17 lb. Sadly, I was alone with no net so pic is not great. The fish took the 1 inch (copper tube) Black-and- Yellow featured in Jim Coates’ and Ross MacDonald’s ‘How to catch a springer’, T&S March 2012 (page 81). Thanks J and R. Line was a Guideline Triple D float/hover/int with a fast sinking tip” see image of fish here
