Shillinglee Day Ticket Fishery located on the Surrey / Sussex border consists of five ponds, the main specimen lake, which is the one most day ticket anglers and carp anglers prefer, is a beautiful spring fed lake of approximately 6.5 Acres in size with lots of natural features and wildlife plus some very good fishing.
This fishery has been run as a day ticket water since 1995 attracting many anglers from all over Surrey and Sussex and has featured in the angling press on a number of occasions. Prior to that it was run as an exclusive syndicate water, having been known for its above average Carp, Tench and Pike for many years.
The specimen lake is renowned for its variety of fish with Common and Mirror Carp currently being caught to well over 30 lb, and if recent catches are anything to go by some lucky day ticket angler will catch our first 40lb Carp very soon. Tench regularly weigh in at around 8lbs. Our largest Pike went to 42lb a few years back but having not been seen for quite some time we expect she has died, but you never know. Our known current best Pike is 25lb but growing quickly so what she will weigh by the end of the year?
The Specimen lake caters not just for the big fish angler
but has a good stock of
specimen Roach, Perch and Golden Rudd for those who prefer
lighter tackle, whilst still enjoying a nice days fishing.
There are not many day ticket waters which offer such good
fishing set in such a natural landscape.
Before fishing please take time to read the rules.
