ALBURY FISHING CLUB EVENT – The next planned event is a talk by Andy Ford presenter of ‘On The Bank’ fishing programme on BT Sport on the evening of 21st November. Andy is a fantastic all round angler but specialises in fly fishing and has represented England. The talk will start at 7pm and will take place in The Drummond Pub in Albury. The cost is £5. To book a place please email me at [email protected] Also I still have a few places left for our grayling fishing trip on the 17th October.
Millhouse lake at Weston is now fully stocked and open for fishing. It was also stocked with some rather nice blue trout between 5lb and 7lb. The pics below are of a couple of nice blues taken recently. Powdermills in now being refilled and should reopen at the end of the month.
Largely it was a dry week with some nice warm weather about, especially on Saturday when temperatures reached 24 degrees. Sunday was a different day all together with fairly heavy rain for most of the day and night. A respectable 126 fish were taken to the week ending 14th October with Weston the top performer with 83 and Vale with 43. Weston’s Millhouse lake is fishing very well.
All river beats are now closed and will reopen again April 2019.
Winter Season Rods are now available to purchase on the website and offer fantastic value for money to fish from October 1st until the end of March 2019 which will see some of the best fishing of the year.
Tactics wise regular fly changes are the key to success to find what the fish want. This has mostly been small flies fished just under the surface with diawl bachs, buzzers and small GRHE working well. However at the other end of the spectrum some anglers have had success stripping large bright lures such as hot head damsel and cats whisker. Also a few daddy long legs about so be sure to have a few in your box. Fish daddies dry on the surface or water log them and fish them just under the surface, ideal conditions would be overcast with a nice ripple on the surface.
Weston main lake now open for fishing and fully stocked (see pic below). Already plenty of fish being caught with the hot spots being towards the car park end of the main lake.
The largest fish taken recently was Barry Maynes with an 11lb 8oz rainbow (see pic below).
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.
20 anglers enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable talk and demo by Peter Cockwill (see pic below) on Tuesday 24th April. We will be running another Albury Fishing Club event soon so please keep an eye on the website.
Our annual Troutmaster Competition was held on Saturday 14th April at Weston with the winner going on to represent the Fishery at the final at Draycote later in the year. We had 12 anglers on the day battling it out for top spot (see pic below)
The eventual winner was Phil Gayford (pic below) with 4 fish weighing in at a comp weight of 16lb 5oz. Second place was to Cliff Pearce with 13lb 12oz and 3rd Suajunas Zilius with 13lb 9oz.
In the absence of Albury Game Angling shop we will now be selling Fulling Mill flies, spools of leader and tapered leaders. These will be available from the bailiff. We will look to expand our range over a period of time.

Day Member entry 08:30. Last entry is 18:00. Fishing permitted until Dusk
The algae bloom has died off and fish can be spotted all over the lake at the moment. Buzzers and nymphs helped to bring catch numbers near the 100 mark last week. Fished at a depth of 2ft the most successful flies were GRHEs, PTNs and BFDs. A 5wt floating line and a 9ft leader allows plenty of casting potential to reach the fish in the middle above the island. Vary retrieves regularly to find a speed that works for the fish. Syon received a stocking of some big blues this week so keep those eyes peeled as they can easily be spotted whilst swimming about.
We’ve unfortunately had to cancel our latest Young Angler’s Day due to the availability of guides. There will be another one on the spring!
The Species Challenge is still live, all you need to do is catch a rainbow, blue, brown, and tiger trout to get next years season membership for free! There are still tigers swimming around the lake which were stocked back in April and blues and browns are regularly stocked along with weekly stockings of rainbows. All trout must be caught on the day and verified by the bailiff.
Super star celebrity angler John Tydeman has performed in his biggest role to date in this Cadbury’s advert filmed at Syon Park. Over 1 million views for for John, just a few thousand shy of the number of fish he’s caught on his hand tied flies.
On Monday 14th May we participated in a schools day. We showed over 200 primary school children different species of fish that live in UK waters. We also scooped some invertebrates from the lake. We found lots of Water Hog Louse, Gammarus, Water Boatmen, Leeches, Snails, and Damselfly Nymphs. All the children also had the exciting opportunity to see and touch a rainbow trout! For the majority of them it was the first time they’d ever touched a live fish.
We’ve recently uploaded videos of Syon Park from the Sky! You can really appreciate the seclusion provided by Capability Browns tree line when you fly over the top and see the city sprawl around us. See Lakes From Above Page.

Prices for day tickets and fish tokens are now cheaper to buy online than on the bank. A day ticket on the bank will cost £15 and two fish tokens will be £22, card payments only. If you pay online before you come however it will only cost £12 for your day ticket and two fish tokens will be £21.50.
Do I have to choose which day to come fishing?
No, you do not need to pick a day to come fishing when you buy your day ticket. The ticket will be open to use between 01-04-18 and 31-03-19. Day tickets are single use only.
Do I have to wait for my fish tokens to be posted to me before I come fishing?
We do not post out tokens. You will be able to collect your tokens from the bailiff on the bank but you will need a copy of your receipt with you, printed or screenshot on phone. 1 Fish token must be placed in the returns box for each fish caught. You may buy more tickets throughout the day either online via the mobile site, or on the bank via card payment.
Why is it cheaper to buy online?
We want to encourage our anglers to purchase their tickets online. It makes the process of bailiffing quicker and gives us the correct information every time you turn up on the bank. We’ve ended up with multiple accounts for the same anglers, this process makes sure we have no mistakes, no duplicates, and gives you more time to fish!

Entry to the fishery will continue to be 8am but last entry will now be 5.30pm – fishing can continue as usual to sunset.
