Welcome to Hemmingways Fishing
Typically, a guided day starts around 9.00am and we'll fish to about 5.30 pm with a lunch stop somewhere along the way, but shorter sessions are available. We aim to be flexible and tailor the day to suit your requirements. If we are having a good time and the fish are feeding then the last cast can sometimes take a while!
"One of the best...a damn fine guide and brilliant teacher." Mike Trauner. Miami
Since 1993 we have been offering unique guided fishing trips and fly casting tuition to individuals, groups and corporate clients, on the beautiful lakes and rivers of the English Lake District.
We catch and release a wide variety of fish, including some superb salmon and sea trout, wild brown trout, lots of pike, a pot or two of charr, and some huge perch. You might even have seen us on TV with Matt Hayes.
By choice we fish the quieter Lakeland waters and also have exclusive private fishing of our own. As lifelong anglers we know which waters are fishing well, and have the skill and expertise to help you, our guest, enjoy a memorable days fishing in spectacular surroundings.
We can provide all you might need for a days fishing including quality tackle, boat where appropriate, good humoured tuition, full insurance cover and safety equipment, guide service with our legendary shoreline lunch available by arrangement. All you really need are an Environment Agency licence for the day, from any post office, suitable footwear and a waterproof although the odd snack for the guide is always appreciated!
Most days are guided by well known Cumbrian angler and environmentalist Eric A Hope. A member of the Game angling Instructors Association and holder of the Salmon and Trout Association National Instructors Certificate, Eric has a lifetimes experience of big fish and wild waters all over the world from Russia to Colorado and has a knowledge of fishing in the Lake District, second to none.
