Good to hear, I might give it a go. Can you fit a bivvi in most swims and do you pay on the bank?.
How much for two rods?, and how much for 1 rod for a 6 year old?.

Cheers.

Brooklands, or Dartford Lakes as we used to call it, has been fishing well. I sometimes fish it during the day by myself but would only do nights with someone else. One of those places you dont take your best gear to.

There older lakes and I've heard they have had a bit of attention making them more accessible to anglers.
There is more than one lake right?, so which lake would be best for a 12hr session?, any tips on methods which have worked well, baits, swims etc..

Any info would be greatly appreciated, any need for a deterrent lol, such as baseball bat.

It would be ideal really, not far, just wanna know as I may take my son as well.

Cheers again.

Many years before me, look at the prices now it costs a fortune just for a 12 hr day.
I buy cheap bait as well, apart from boilies (particles, groundbait etc..)

Thanks for the info lads, much appreciated.
Thought about Brooklands (briefly), a bit rough isn't it?, don't fancy putting up with hords of youths boozing and up to no good.
Frant looks ok, any tips for fishing it on a day session?, lakes, popular baits, good features etc...

Does it get busy at the weekends?.

Cheers.

Brooklands lake on princes road Dartford is day ticket, it is run by DDAPS.

Frant lakes is probably the same distances as Elphicks.

The mention of Horton Kirby takes me back to when I used to fish it on a day ticket, 25p dawn to dusk.

Kirby and Sutton both fish well generally but like all lakes they can have their off days. Join DDAPS mate as it's not just all about Sutton & Kirby. They've just bought two of the CEMEX Sutton lakes and they have Bennetts near Tunbridge Wells as well.

If you are interested in DDAPS then get your application in ASAP. Nothing to pay unless you get accepted but that depends on how many drop out in April, so you wont know until May/June if you got in.

Looks a good venue Rodders77, I'm gonna try January cos of funds etc..., I was wondering if they would let you fish it for the day before joining it, I know that members can take a guest for the day (not sure if they pay a tenner or something), just one problem!, don't know any members.

Had a look in the freshwater informer and took note of alot of places, thought strawberry fields might be worth a shot but I'm looking for somewhere which isn't too spoilt, a reservoir or lake which is old/ mature holds good fish, quite etc..

Few and far between I suppose, when I lived in Colchester I used to fish Ardliegh reservoir, this was great as never many people there and even if you didn't catch it was ok as it was very relaxing.
I went to Prairie lake at Elphicks this weekend and it was madness, I qued up in the car got marshalled to park and when I got to the lake the better swims for tge day were taken.
When I walked to the lake to get eyes on, people had put tackle in swims and were running back and forth lol, one guy fell on his back running with his gear lol, I helped him out but wasn't impressed.
Midweek sessions if I go there again.
