Albury Estate Fishery 2018/19 Season
Firstly I would like to thank all of you for your continued support over the last season which has been testing at times given the lack of water. However there are glimmers of hope emerging due to a fairly wet winter which has helped replenish river and groundwater levels which will ensure a high quality of fishing well into the summer.
Excitement is also building around the possibility of a new fishing lodge at Weston. This has been long overdue and will become the heart and soul of the fishery. It will consist of a large club room with comfortable tables and chairs, log burner as well as a kitchen, toilets and fishery office/small tackle shop.
Other major news is that from April 1st we will be restructuring our day and season rod format slightly. From April 1st day ticket anglers will have access to Weston and Vale End fishery only. Please note that from April 1st Powdermills will become season rod only. Day ticket prices will see a slight increase next season but buying online will be cheaper than buying on the bank. Day ticket anglers will be able to purchase the new 2018/19 fish tickets during March 2018 (effectively valid for 13 months) but this must be done online. Any tickets purchased on the bank in March will receive the 2017/18 tickets that will expire at the end of March 2018.
The Season Rod Package offers more value than ever with freedom to fish when you like over all waters with Powdermills becoming exclusively for season rod holders only. Season rod holders will also get priority and discounts on the Albury Fishing Club events which have been really successful with guest speakers such as Charles Jardine and Peter Cockwill and grayling fishing on the river Test. Season rod prices will see a small increase after remaining static for the past two years but if you purchase online before April 2018 you will be able to get it at last season’s price.
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).
Please remember that all green 2017/18 tokens expire at the end of March.
All anglers are reminded that you must sign in and sign out at each fishery. Failure to do this could lead to your membership being revoked.
