Albury Estate Fisheries FAQ
See below for frequently asked questions about fly fishing at Albury and Syon Park.
No catch a fish and keep it. Each fish caught takes one Fish Token.
All lakes open at 08:30 and close at dusk.
Each token purchased represents a fish caught. For each fish caught a token is placed in the return box at each lake.
A token is valid for the fishing season (April 1st - March 31st)
If you don’t use all your fish tokens on your visit unused tokens are carried over to your next visit.
You can exchange unused fish the token at Kingfisher farm shop for a frozen trout during the last few days of the season.
Or between the 28th and 31st March, the tokens can be exchanged for fresh fish at the trout farm by appointment.
Day Members may purchase 2,3 or 4 Tokens at a time.
Season Members may purchase Tokens in 10s
