    Tyne & Eden – Seeking Local Knowledge

    Cormorants were seen in there hundreds John three years ago, one Appleby member counted over 80 in one field drying off.

    I know Geoff well but I doubt he’ll tell you much different, I’ve been fishing the Eden for over 60 years and I’m pretty sure of how it is at the moment. S.
