Latest news from Albury, Surrey
Updated 19th March
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.
During a disrupted weeks fishing due to snow, a very respectable 229 fish were taken to the week ending 18th March. Weston was the top performer with 110, Vale End with 98 and Powdermills with 21. 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).

Latest news from Syon Park, London
Updated 19th March
The lake is still fishing incredibly, with another 180 plus fish out this week despite the snow!
The battle of the big fish has also not let up Jim Chalmers caught himself a lovely 7lb 8oz Rainbow. However not to be outdone this month is Roy Lyu with a huge 9lb 12oz Beauty caught on the ever faithful Cats Whiskers.
The shallow end of the lake is still the best fishing, we’ve seen a lot of great action here with Damsels working well and also the buzzers still working there magic!
A few updates here at Syon we’ve upgraded the entrance so all members will now be walking through the hut, where will be placing a sign In and Out sheet which we will be requiring all to fill in. We will still be keeping you up to date with all our fishing information, news and events. You may have noticed also we are in the process of working on our inlet and some work on the banks around the lake. We are trying to increase water quality and also plant life around the lake to encourage more insect life. We will be planting a few more trees that will eventually take over from our champion and big Taxodiums.
With the end of the season coming up fast it’s time to come and use up those green 2017/18 fish tokens and get yourself some new blue 2018/19 tokens.
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.
