Welcome to the New Season 2020

Not great conditions for Grayling
I can't believe we are into February already, a poor winter up to now if you have been targeting Grayling, with water levels continuously fluctuating on the river Eden. 

However we are already three weeks into the 2020 Salmon season, (still early yet, I know) but I was made aware only yesterday of a couple of fish being caught on the lower river, this I have yet to confirm, but it would not be the first time early season salmon have been recorded down there.

Despite the usual cold, wet days of January, there have also been a few kinder days in between which have allowed for the odd tuition sessions, yes you heard it correctly, I am more than happy to take out the Die Hards on these early season days, and in the sunshine especially, (with the right clothes on) these sessions can be very enjoyable and can always be re-arranged if the weather turns against us.

Apart from these early tuition sessions the fishing itself can be quite slow at this time of year, until that is, we get into March, (when the trout season begins) and beyond this, when the Salmon numbers begin to increase.
Tuition & Fishing available any time of the year
as you can see from the link below to the 2020 Border Game Angling website Calendar, bookings are now beginning to arrive fast and furious and I can't wait to catch up with people again and also meet people for the first time in 2020 as things start to get going again.

So I am looking forward to seeing some of you again throughout the year, to either help improve your casting skills, catch a few fish, or both! Here's to a good season in 2020.
