Set in the picturesque Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty nestles the Albury village with four Fly Fishing locations
Albury offers three regular lakes: Powder Mills, Vale End and Weston plus for Syndicate members, Park Lake.
Off Blacksmith Lane in Chilworth, Powder Mills is a 4 acre water in peaceful natural surroundings, appreciated by the more discerning and experienced fly fisherman.
Vale End provides four acres of beautifully landscaped and varied stillwater and stream fishing comprising Belmont Lake and Mill Lake, which nestle at the foot of Belmont Wood. These waters are spring fed, with clean gravel on the lake beds giving rise to a wealth of natural fly life, especially olives and buzzers. Stands of established Alder and Crack Willow provide ample shade and natural cover. Mill Pool and Belmont are stocked with brown and rainbow trout of an average weight of 2lb 8oz up to in excess of 10lb.
Weston Fishery offers three lakes fed by spring water totalling 6 acres, with plenty of bank space and open back cast area, and all with a good average depth.
Albury Park Fishery offers the very best of both lake and stream fishing at this classically beautiful venue set amidst magnificent trees, rhododendron and azalea bushes. It is a peacefully quiet location at which to fish, with the brownie sport for both stocked and wild fish on the Tillingbourne a particular feature. The tranquil 1.5 acre is stocked with those hard-fighting Albury rainbows, averaging 2.25lbs, whilst the river beats offer challenging sport to browns of 1lb to 1.5lbs.
