Latest news from Albury
Updated 5th February
Belmount lake at Vale End currently being drained down, Mill lake will remain open during this time. Proceed here with caution – very muddy banks in places.
Millhouse lake at Weston is open following the dredging work, so this fishery is now fully open again, and the water is extremely clear!
A reminder that the reduced day rod membership of £8 is available on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Great article on the fishery in this months Total Flyfisher Magazine by England International fly fisherman Ben Bangham. Its well worth a read and offers some very good tips and tactics.
151 trout taken in the week to 31st Jan. All lakes producing well, so, go where you wish, you will find fish feeding everywhere. Some fish have been coming short, so be prepared to shorten fly tail lengths to confirm hook-holding.
Flies to have in your box include hot head and blue flash damsels, cats whisker and a selection of different coloured fritz patterns. A medium to fast retrieve is working well as the fish become more aggressive and willing to chase in the cooler conditions. To increase your sucess rate regular fly changes will help rather than presenting the same fly over and over again to the fish, also if possible have a second rod set up so that one rod has a floating line on it and the other an intermediate or slow sinking line.
