Thread: Lakes in London

  1. #1

    Default Lakes in London

    I was just wondering if anyone has fished on micham common, keston ponds, danson park lake, or south norwood?

    If someone has fished any of the above, can you give me details of your experience?

    More recent the better. I cant find recent info on these lakes. Im looking for somewhere local to fish. I go clapham common but it doesnt feel right with buses driving past me when im fishing.

    Thanks for reading

    I was going to try thamesmead but ive heard that cars get damaged alot. And it always seems to be the people who fish it are the cars that get damaged.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    I really don't like to Fish in urban environments, but this looks interesting in Woolwich:

    My favourite lakes in London are the reservoirs of the Walthamstow complex. Just watch out for the mitten crabs!
