NEW SEASON 2018 – 19 NEWS. The website has been updated with 2018/19 Day and Season Products. These are available during March at the current (2017) prices. April will see a slight increase in cost of Membership and Fish Tokens. Please note that from 1st April Powdermills will become season rod only.
Please remember that all green 2017\18 tickets expire the end of March.
With a huge difference in weather conditions this week a lot more anglers ventured out to use their remaining tokens up. As a result an impressive 283 fish were caught to the week ending 11th March. All lakes are fishing well with fish location being key rather than type of fly. However the majority of fish were taken on small lures fished 2ft to 5ft down. Flies to have in your box would be BFD, Hot Head Damsel and Cats Whisker.
The next Albury Fishing Club Event is Tuesday 24th April and is an ‘Early Season Trout Fishing Masterclass‘ with Peter Cockwill. It will take place at Weston Fishery and runs from 9am to 1pm. The cost is £15 for Season and Syndicate Rods who have priority on the event and have until the end of March to book before the event is opened up to day ticket anglers at £20 (this price does not include membership or tokens to fish which must be purchased separately if you wish to fish on the day).

Updated 12th March
What a difference a week makes! From 12 fish out for the previous week we have had well over 200 fish putting up a great fight and being landed this week. Our Biggest fish of March so far was caught by Patrick D’Cruz weighing in at 8lbs, followed by Seamus Jennings with a 7 1/4Lbs and Andrew Morison with a 7lbs, which he caught in a bag of 16 sensational fish!
The fishing started the week with Damsel varieties of flies being dominant the ones with white and gold on them being most effective. However as the week went on we’ve noticed some black flies on the surface and a few pondering a hatch, which has led to fisherman trying there luck with Buzzers, this has been right on the money and all those catching using red and black buzzers or a gold head buzzer have had a great days fishing! The shallower parts of the lake have had the best fishing this week.
Phil Holbrook is the winner of our Troutmasters Competition for 2017!! Phil is new to the sport, so this has been a great achievement and thoroughly enjoyable, he could be seen throwing his arms up in elation when the news was given that he had won the day by 3/4 of a pound. Phil is now off to the finals at Draycote Trout water in October. Congratulations Phil!!!
