Get to know Prince Al­bert

It’s the club with more than 220 waters all over the UK

Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

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.
