The beat allows you to fish for Grayling between 15th October and February 14th. We were the only ones on the stretch and geared up to fish for potential lunkers. We had both fished here many years ago and had great success. The Eden holds a good number of Grayling and when you eventually find them they are hard fighting fish. The day was just awesome and accounted for many a Grayling, not the monsters that can be expected but nice fish around the 1-1.5lb mark. I fished the bugs for the day and they took a shine to a variety of shrimp patterns. You'll certainly need the extra weight on your team of nymphs when fishing here as deeper holes line the route.
All in all a quality day on the river with Dad and we will be back to see if the big Ladys will be out to play next time. Just a word of warning, if you fish here during the Grayling dates expect to be startled by the Salmon jumping through the pools on a regular basis and making there way onwards and upwards.
