Latest news from Albury, Surrey
Updated July 5th
A welcome change this week to some much cooler weather which gave us much better fishing conditions. Considering we are into July the fishing is holding up well and just about any of the lakes will be worth a go with the most important factor being, to be adaptable to your approach to fishing with regular fly changes, covering the water, consider fishing lighter tippets and smaller flies all playing a part in a successful days fishing.
Other news is that we have now been able to offer tuition on the fishery again, including half and full days tuition at Syon Park. Please visit the Learn to Fly Fish page on the website for more details.
Please could season rods continue to call the bailiff to book a days fishing so we are able to monitor angler numbers on the fishery. Day rods must have payed online before arriving at the fishery.
The largest and biggest bag of fish recently was to Michael Corsini who had three stunning brown trout between 6lb and 8lb on stalking bugs at Vale End (see pics below).
Below is a nice brown trout taken by Mark Barlow.
Below is a picture of Warren Crawford he landed this superb 7lb brown trout from Mill house lake at Weston
The new fishing lodge is coming on well.
Please note that the police and environment agency will be carrying out regular patrols of the fishery so please ensure you have a valid rod license and all fish caught are declared and paid for. The picture below is of a recent patrol.
ATTENTION ALL ANGLERS. We have recently caught and banned some anglers abusing our system and practicing catch and release which is NOT permitted on any day ticket Albury water. We now have a number of voluntary bailiff’s who will be on the look out.
We now have for sale through the website ‘Starter Fishing Outfits’ for £69.99. Included is a 9ft 5\6 weight rod, reel loaded with a floating line, tapered leader, flies and safety glasses.

We have had a couple of busy weeks collecting weed and the lake is mostly clear and fishing well! The weed is still growing and we have another boat coming soon which will time perfectly to keep on top of the growth.
The water is still crystal clear making sight fishing with a dry fly great sport. The morning and evening rises are brilliant, the middle of the day is fishing slower but still having good results with the warm weather.
Best results are Dry Flies mornings and evenings and BUZZERS at about 2ft-3ft the rest of the time.
We would like to thank everyone for sticking with us through these challenging times and keeping yourselves safe, remember to keep your distance from people as some may not feel confident to express their feelings on social distancing.
