PLEASE ensure that you read and are fully aware of byelaws applying to waters, in particular ban on all braided line, night fishing restrictions and water closure prior to and during club matches. Dedicated parking areas MUST always be used unless dispensation has been granted to disabled members. Gate access combination padlocks are in use on most waters and are reset each season – it is obviously essential to close any such gates and padlocks after leaving.
SHILLINGLEE MAIN LAKE
Owned by the Society, located on the Surrey/West Sussex border, the 30 acre lake enjoys a tranquil, stunning outlook from all 45 diverse swims – reed surrounded platforms, purpose built sheltered bank stands, natural swims in the woods or on the lake wall. A comprehensive stock of (many specimen) Bream, Roach, Rudd, Tench, Perch, Carp and Pike make for diverse angling opportunities. A testing but delightful water that tempts members back again and again.
Access is via a padlocked gate and track adjacent to the Bicknell Pond over the causeway into main car park. A 10 to 15 minute walk is required to reach swims on the opposite side of the lake which tend to be under utilised compared with those close by parking areas. A Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), emphasis is very much on conservation and adherence to the close season, with opportunities to spot rare plants, extensive bird, animal and insect life. Carp and Pike must NOT be retained and are to be returned to the water immediately after capture and weighing. A carp night ticket system is in operation – regular Bailiff monitoring ensures compliance.
BICKNELL POND SHILLINGLEE
Separated from the main lake by a vehicle width causeway, parking is available at the main lake or on the entrance road adjacent to Bicknell pegs 9 and 10. A 4 acre 40 peg water recently re-stocked with Tench. Easily accessible dedicated swims are available for disabled or infirm members. A popular venue for those who do not wish to walk too far from the car park, or fancy a few profitable hours in the early morning or evening.
