Latest news from Albury, Surrey
Updated 7th December.
Getting milder now and pleased to report the that all lakes are ice free.
It was a reasonable weeks fishing with 137 fish caught to the week ending 4th December. However we were pretty well iced up for half the week, so it was a very good effort.
The week ahead looks like it will be mild and overcast, perfect winter fishing conditions. The fish are still fairly high up in the water for the time of year so floating lines will work but maybe go to an intermediate line if it gets very cold. Small imitative patterns such as PTN and GRHE are still working well but expect the fish to become more active and aggressive in the cooler weather which will see small lures working well such as damsel patterns in various styles, cats whisker and fritz patterns.
Early week Discount ……remember that reduced day rod membership of £8 is available on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Another cold quiet week attendance wise with a couple of days fishing lost to ice cover. However, 61 fish were taken.
The top end of the fishery fished particularly well, but fish were definitely in the bottom half of the water so Goldhead flies doing well; Cats Whisker and Blue Flash Damsel took nearly all the bag. If you use a floating line just use a longer leader to get the fly down and move around to find the most productive spots.
