Last month of the Albury Year. Beautiful start to March. Come and use up 2014 Fish Tokens.

How’s it fishing – Syon
BBC Weather Forecast for Syon
Last week was a real mixed bag, a little warmer again with no disruption to ice cover, with some lovely weather early in the week and a complete washout on Sunday. The fishing has been slightly slower due to an early season diatom bloom brought on by the sunny weather early in the week which produces a brown stain in the water, however it generally crashes and returns to normal in a few days.
101 fish taken (week ending 22nd) including an 8lb 8oz Rainbow for Hamish Dobson, 7lb Brown for Alan Coplin on a Black Buzzer and a 6lb Brown for Joe Parker on a Blue Flash Damsel.
Most fish are still being taken at depth so fish long leaders and goldhead patterns with floating lines or ideally intermediate or slow sink lines. Blue Flash Damsel or Cats Whiskers appearing most on fishing returns, but moving around to find the most productive spots on the day is far more important than fly choice.
If you are a first time visitor to the fishery, please call the duty bailiff on 07956 378138 the day before your visit to obtain the code to enter into the keypad on the gate entry system. Once on the fishery the bailiff will issue you a membership card which will give you access via a barcode swipe system. Please note that the gate code is regularly changed; use your card!
