THE RIVER EDEN
controls approximately 9 miles of the Eden on various beats between
Bolton near Appleby and Armathwaite.
The Eden flows over some carboniferous limestone, making it very rich in habitat and species biodiversity, as well as over sandstone and mudstone. It flows through beautiful meadows and woodlands with a large variety of wildlife.
The record Eden trout weighed 8lbs and was 9 years old. This was caught in 1911 on a stretch now run by the club with a Bustard moth pattern, a fly that was, and still is by some, fished at night and is unique to these waters (this stretch has also produced two specimens over 7lbs and one of 5lbs). There has been at least five other captures over 6lbs recorded from the Eden, a brown trout found dead at Crowdundle Beck in 1923 weighed 9lbs. Leviathans of this size will still lurk in the depths but only rarely come to the fly.
Trout and grayling predominate in the Association's water, although the occasional salmon and sea trout is encountered. By far the majority of fish are wild, native stock.
