Hi Guys,

Just wondering how Halliford Mere lakes in shepperton are fishing at the moment, as I am looking to head down there Next Friday afternoon?
I am pretty new to fly fishing and also wondered what my chances would be and if any of you have any tips?

Thank

Hi mate.
Welcome to the forum!

Haliford Mere can be tough especially at this time of year although if we get some rain and it stays cool this week, it might be ok.
It's cheap enough if you want some casting practice & if you catch, it's a bonus.
If you want to catch, you might be better of at Albury Estate fishery near Guildford. Bit more expensive with no catch & release.

Where are you based?

Hey
Thanks mate Smile

Well originally from Addlestone so really Close, Live in Norway at the moment, which is where I started fly fishing.
But I am back visiting home next weekend and the old man wanted to give it a go, who am I to deny that. Smile
Yeah I looked at Albury estate but the internet says it is closed till September 1st for dredging.
To be honest my casting does need more practice and it will be good to give my Dad a go I guess.

Hi mate
Syon at Isleworth is closed but the rest of the fisheries are open, they are near Guildford.

You could also try here:

Lots of small lakes and no need to cast a mile! Catch and Release too!

Hope that helps!

Hello all,

Just wanted to say that Halliford Mere is now under new management.

Lake 1 was stocked last week and more fish ordered for next week.

The trout are taking Blueflash damsels and Montana`s

Also lots of work going into clearing swims and back-casts where reqd.

Hope to see some of you soon.

Gerry

Hi Gerry.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the update. Are you the new manager?

If so, will the fishery now be open 7 days a week or closed on Monday and Tuesday's like before?

Cheers
Nigel

Exciting news Gerry, there are plenty of us here who have fished Halliford so I'm sure you'll get lots of support, good luck

Hello,

The plan is to continue with the existing Wednesday to Sunday opening for the time being.

Maybe with a review when the planned works complete.

Cheers

Hi

Good luck with the works Gerry. I used to have a season ticket so will be interested in how things develop (although not much time for fishing at the mo.).

Is it still going to be predominately C&R or will there be some put n take?

Hello all,

Ticket prices are 15-00 for any 5 hour period, or 20-00 for all day.

We also offer a full season ticket for 480-00, which gives you access 7 days a week.

It was great to meet drsixty7 today, I hope I can meet some more of you soon.

Cheers

Gerry

p.s. Lake 1 is fishing very well, with the best days catch return being 33 fish from 5 rods. Very Happy

Good to meet you too Gerry, you'll definitely be seeing more of me down at Halliford especially with an encouraging catch rate like that, anyone up for a mini social?

I'd be up for that Mick!
Lets get a few of us together. Kev, t'other Mick, Steve, Tim and perhaps Troutstalker.

Gerry, please keep us informed of catch reports and news. It will certainly generate interest for you as 'might' a Facebook page.
