Latest news from Albury
Updated 22nd May
Welcome to the new Albury Estates Year and the introduction of pink fish tokens. Remember that all on-line purchases are given to you when you next visit the lakes, quote your order number and you will be presented with your tokens. Enjoy.
Attention all anglers. The reduced day rod membership of £8 is now available on Mondays and Tuesdays (except Bank Holidays).
Average temperatures for the time of year, 18-20c, have seen the mayfly hatch get going at last, a good layer of cloud permitting, but most days last week saw sunny intervals each day……apart from Thurs 14th which saw rain all day and just 8c. Grim, and only three anglers on the Estate that day!
Anglers have been taking fish chiefly on the nymph, with buzzer, damsel and mayfly the principle patterns to try. All fisheries at Albury will see a good mayfly hatch at some stage, which extends the actual ‘hatch season‘.
The best of the action can be expected last week of May first week of June.
Water clarities are excellent at most waters now. Good fishing is reported from all waters, with a catch total of 255 fish caught in the week to 17th May.
Buzzers as well as diawl bachs have been accounting for a fair number of fish, otherwise Mayfly nymph, BFDs and GRHE are scoring well.
An introductory teach-in flyfishing day was held at Vale End on Sat 16th May, in excellent weather, although too bright for a really high catch. Good casting skills were exhibited by the beginners who thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and visitors also witnessed a nice mayfly hatch late afternoon.
Just a couple of Half Rod spaces left available on Albury Park Syndicate, please enquire to Tony Hern.
