The far-north west, north of the Lake District, is one of the least spoiled, least crowded and most beautiful parts of England, and offers some wonderful fly-fishing. The Eden is the prime river, and is full of trout up to three pounds and more, as well as grayling and salmon. Many good stretches of it and its tributaries – such as the Eamont and Lowther – can be accessed through the www.go-wild.org.uk website, which also has information about accommodation. The season starts in April, but the best months are probably May, June and September.
