Latest news from Albury

Updated 24th July

Weston Main lake is now drained and fallowing. Wood Lodge Pool (currently very clear and exceptional stalking quality) and Millhouse lake open as usual.

25 fish caught between Weston and Vale End yesterday.

Challenging fishing right now in the heat. In very hot weather the best fishing is going to be away from the heat of the day.  Come fishing after teatime! Otherwise, concentrate on areas with shade, depth or river flow.

Currently Wood Lodge pool and Mill lake at Vale End are offering the most consistent sport.

Anglers should be looking to smaller patterns like buzzers and nymphs in sizes 14 to 16 to put a fish or two on the bank when regular patterns fail. All day ticket river beats will offer reliable sport during hot periods.

Some places still available on the Albury Park Syndicate. If you like peace and quiet when you fish, a Parkland setting, bespoke brown trout river fishing, your own exclusive lake, access to all the day waters, and a guest to fish with at any tine, then this could be the fishery for you.  For enquiries, or a prospectus, please contact Tony Hern. Rates can be adjusted pro rata for the season already foregone.

Weedcutting by chain in progress – weed is cut to the lake floor, and with drifting weed ‘mats’, there are now excellent opportunities to fish at depth. Stalking bugs, PTNs GRHEs and BFDs taking most fish.

Good surface movement on Park Lake given some cloud, and some nice depth to escape the heat here, dries taking a fair proportion of the catch.

4lb 2oz brownie taken from the lake 23rd June by Brendan Clancy to a Damsel. Best patterns BFDs, PTN and Montana.

River fishing is in good order with plenty of browns showing including a good number of wildies. The new pools at Church Beat have been offering some great sport. GRHE, PTN and sedge patterns now taking most fish.

Banks now in much better condition than early Spring, but still a few soft spots, partuicularly on Lodge Beat where the whole bank was rebuilt last winter  - please tread carefully! Bank trimming now having taken place, so not too much offending cow parsley to catch your fly.

In the week to 123th July, 38 lake rainbows were taken – most anglers currently concentrating on river action to mayfly, 23 takeable river browns came to the net. There is a healthy population of wild brown showing, having survived the high winter levels. Mayfly patterns took the lion’s share of fish this week on both lake and river.

Fishing here is the very best that the Estate has to offer, with guests able to fish with you at any time. One or two vacancies still on offer, so please enquire by emailing Tony.

New rod Nigel Hartley joined the syndicate 5th June and was rewarded immediately with a 13lb 8oz whopper, to a Damsel.

The recently introduced Family Rod enables up to two family members to fish at any time, including a guest at any time.

For those of you interested in taking out a new application, we have a prospectus available for 2014. Please email Tony. If you have not fished in the Park before, it’s two greatest attributes are the peace and quiet the stunning Parkland setting contributes towards a generally ‘more undisturbed’ day than on the busier day waters – and – the bespoke stocking of the Tillingbourne beats with hard fighting brown trout.
