Get to know Prince Albert
It’s the club with more than 220 waters all over the UK
WHEN a club has more than 220 waters in its portfolio, you know it’s got to be pretty special – and that’s certainly the case with Prince Albert AS.
The Cheshire society offers a staggering range of waters to fish right through the season at a bargain price.
Every member of the club has access to secluded meres, big stillwaters and rivers that offer everything from trout and salmon to specimen carp and bream.
The club is also highly active on the tuition front, with free coaching days for juniors and an extensive match calendar to get youngsters into fishing.
The waters controlled by Prince Albert are as far apart as the Scottish Borders down to South West Wales. Night fishing is available on many of these, too, and because the club does not operate a day-ticket system you’ll often have a venue all to yourself.
Famous rivers including the Severn, Trent, Wye, Eden, Ribble, Mersey and Dee are on offer with fine barbel, chub and roach sport, plus many smaller, intimate wild waters in Wales, fly anglers have the chance to catch trout, fresh-run sea trout and salmon when the time is right.
For stillwater anglers, Redesmere, part of the Capesthorne Estate in Cheshire, is a famed carp water fished by the biggest names in the sport and home to fish well over 30lb. In all, there are over 50 stillwaters on the club card ranging from 100 acre lakes to small ponds. Anglers can target carp to over 40lb, specimen tench and bream as well as monster perch and pike. The club also run two long canal stretches as well as some syndicate waters (bookable in advance) including trout venues such as Blithfield Reservoir.
