    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.

    Lune 2021

    I had a couple of hours at Tebay after work today. It was a lovely fly water, spoiled by a nasty upstream wind๐Ÿ™„ 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 ๐Ÿ™„ 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 ๐Ÿคž

    Opinions on my flies appreciated.

    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 ๐Ÿคฃ

    There are definitely Bullheads in the Eden ๐Ÿ‘ Although John Pape's tackle shop is long gone, he's alive and well. He's still in Appleby doing courses and casting tuition ๐Ÿ‘

    Thank you for that update, I too had a short notice change of circumstances and couldn't attend. Hopefully I'll be able to get to Stanhope show instead ๐Ÿ‘

    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 ๐Ÿ‘

    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 ๐Ÿ™„ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Lune 2021

    Fished Tebay for three hours after work for the last three days. Haven't seen anything silver at all ๐Ÿค” I'm over on the river Wear tonight but I might try a night session at Tebay Thursday or Friday

    Lune 2021

    I fish up at Tebay and I've stopped fishing until we get a decent amount of water now. Even the brownies are virtually uncatchable in the daytime. I also fish the Wear for seatrout and have suspended my fishing there as well. I caught a 5.5lb one a fortnight ago and it took me the best part of...

    Well done ๐Ÿ‘ A Lune salmon is probably rarer than a unicorn at the current time ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฆ„

    River wear 2021

    As long as you have a decent reel and floating line you are good to go for seatrout. The same setup served me perfectly well for salmon on the upper Lune but although it'll do the job for you it's far from ideal. If you say which clubs you've joined then I'm sure someone will advise you on...

    River wear 2021

    Chances are your stillwater tackle will be fine to get you up and running. 9'6" - 10' #7 single hander will be fine for the seatrout and you can sort a salmon outfit out when you've had a talk to a few people on the riverbank๐Ÿ‘
