I’m delighted to say that the innovative ‘festival of fishing’ that a bunch of us up in t’north created in 2009 is to happen again. The 2010 event has a similar but expanded format, and we’re asking folk to pre-book events online in advance, wherever possible.

The festival website is at cumbriafishingfestival.co.uk

Don’t forget, Cumbria has a well developed tourist infrastructure, so there’s loads for non-fishing partners to do. If you’re thinking about a Spring break, this might be just the ticket.
