I get asked a lot about where to fish in Hampshire so I thought I would put a list of clubs together and a small bio about lakes I have fished on;
Sinah Warren – This is a lovely lake out on Hayling Island (right next to the sea), it has a good head of carp. Pete Springate has written about it in some of his books. I spent a few years on there and had some nice fish.
Bromwich Farm – This lake is situated out in the middle of nowhere, in the Titchfield area but you would never find it if you didn’t have the directions how to get there. It’s closer to the Solent than any road and holds some lovely fish.
Over the years I have been a member of this club – along with the thousands of other members, which is the big reason why I didn’t get stay too long. Over the years the club has lost a few waters. Oddly, I now have access too, via another club. However, they do have a few good lakes and access to the Avon River & Stour Section
For some reason, I never got round to joining this club, despite having a good few carp lakes. They now have Rockford Lake on their books and some great access to the Avon River & Stour Section
This is a great local club and close to my heart, despite not being a member of over 15 years. This is where it all started for me when I moved down all those years ago. I have fished all their waters but by far the best two are.
Nutsey- Still has some of the old original fish that where there when I was fishing. Unfortunately, the Big Mirror & Common past away some years ago. However, there are lovely looking fish still in there.
Embey Lake – This lake is very close to where I live and I do get the odd hankerings to fish there again. But for the cost of the club, it’s a bit high just for one lake. Winter is coming and you never know…..
