and cost about £8 for two rods, you can also buy a season ticket which costs
about £75, £25 for disabled & £10 for juniors... no night fishing is allowed
here and we think there is still a close season on this water which is good to

Clapham Common Pond
A small lake on a public common in SE London well
stocked with carp to over twenty
lbs. No tickets on this small lake one of the few places left to offer free
fishing, the fishing can be fun and fast on this lake or it can be quite
difficult for no apparent reason, but that's carp fishing!
gravel pit of over 40 acres, one of the best
in the country with many big fish to over 40lb. There is a member ship system in operation on this
lake that apparently is quite difficult to get onto now days but if you
want to try call Boyer Leisure on 01895 444707.
A small pit of
one and a half acres in West Drayton which contains carp to over 30lb, this is
more of a bag up water as most are low doubles but as its a small lake you have
a good chance of getting a biggie if you can get through the smaller stuff. Day
Tickets on the bank cost £8 for two rods and night fishing must be arranged
before you go. For more info Tel: 07931 255897.
Victoria Park Lake
nice sized park lake situated off Old Ford Road between Bethnal Green and Bow,
mostly shallow with two islands. The lake contains mostly double figure common
carp to around the 20lb mark, the odd mirror carp here and there too. A
typically busy park lake with tons of dog walkers, tourists, loonies and so on which can make the fishing far from peaceful but still can be
enjoyable - you can grab a view of the fish here - http://website.lineone.net/~ken_goldfinch/photos.htm
A great complex of reservoirs
all in the Ferry Lane area of Tottenham & Walthamstow, the true potential of this
complex is probably yet to be seen many 20's & 30's are caught here on
regular basis. This complex basically has something for everyone wanting to fish
in London, name a species & you'll find it there and all of them reaching
good sizes. The carp fishing ranges from the relatively easy fishing of the No1
reservoir (soon to be converted to a coarse/match venue), to the very difficult, large & largely unexplored High Maynard
reservoir. The only let down with this complex is that there is no night
fishing. Day tickets are £8 for 2 rods or £12 for 3 rods per day and there are
season tickets available for Low & High Maynard & Lockwood all one one
ticket and there is a season ticket available for West Warwick Tel: 0208
A 4 acre lake in West Drayton, West London with carp well into the twenties,
