    O Out of curiosity, how much is it to join Bentham?

    Lune 2021

    This is my first year back on the Lune after a ten year hiatus and I'm stunned by the lack of fish. I've fished after work 2 or 3 times a week since the drought broke and I've only seen one salmon.

    Lune 2021

    Had an afternoon at Tebay yesterday. Water was still a bit high in most places for the fly but was nice and clear with few leaves. Only saw 1 salmon show. Shook hands with a decent sized fish on the town water but didn't see it so no idea what it was.

    I had a couple of hours at Tebay after work today. It was a lovely fly water, spoiled by a nasty upstream wind🙄 Didn't see or touch any salmon but got hammered by the trout. The next few days should see the salmon start to appear if the forecast rain is accurate

    Lune 2021

    Today I'm delivering mail in the rural area around Tebay and have had a look at several sections of the Lune. There is extra water in the river below Borrowdale beck but unfortunately only enough to bring it back up to a normal summer level 🙄 The good news is that that it's been raining most of...

    It's on the rise at Lunes Bridge. Not a lot yet but plenty more forecast 🤞

    Trespassing or public access?

    I suspect that OP is from the USA. I've seen something to do with this subject on YouTube in the past.

    It would certainly struggle getting under Lunes Bridge and through the gorge 🤣

    Tyne & Eden – Seeking Local Knowledge

    There are definitely Bullheads in the Eden 👍 Although John Pape's tackle shop is long gone, he's alive and well. He's still in Appleby doing courses and casting tuition 👍

    Airflo 40+ 7 weight

    If it's for the switch rod, have a look look at the Guideline bullet range. Ignore the atfm rating and go off the gram/grain rating. If you can find an old stock bullet evolve rather than the bullet 2 you could probably save a considerable amount of money 👍

    Size and weight chart for posting with Royal Mail and Parcelforce

    As a postman I can tell you for a fact that that the tube dimensions aren't adhered to by Post Office staff when accepting parcels 🙄 I've had to refuse to collect items several times purely because I couldn't get them in the van without having to crease the tube. One was 8 foot long 😂😂

    Fished Tebay for three hours after work for the last three days. Haven't seen anything silver at all 🤔 I'm over on the river Wear tonight but I might try a night session at Tebay Thursday or Friday
