Fished it years and years ago partically the long lake at Sevenoaks until they drained it and flattened it was like an egg box with some good fish in there.

They also had the chance to get the far bank but didnít so all the locals/poachers used to fish there and catch plenty so I was told.

Moved onto the river and weir I think it was near staplehurst for the barbel/chub and there was carp present.

I fished it extensively going back more than 40 years. When Chris Logsdon senior used to run BDAS, before he ever went to Mid Kent Angling.

As a very young child one of my best ever days fishing was at Sevenoaks. I had a 28lb pike from the biggest lake, whilst my Dad caught a 27lb carp to die for just five minutes later from the tiny weed choked pit at the back. A pit that I don't think is even there anymore! We caught bundles from all of the lakes they had. My entire school years were spent living in Bromley. They have/had some lovely little waters.

First unwritten rule of clubs that don't like publicity, that you actually want a ticket for in the future.... Don't make a post online asking questions about that club mate. The people at the club making those rules, clearly do not want the publicity.

Please take that in the good spirit in which it is meant Nicky. It's honestly said with the very best intentions because you want a ticket. When there is little or no information available, there is always a reason why. They might love you making this thread for all I know these days, I have not even been a member for decades. But I'd doubt that personally, because it's no publicity.

Not sure if itís still the case but it also used to have a no braided mainline rule, and zero publicity. A lot of the named anglers avoided it because of the publicity rule.

Thank you..I was a member and it was so long ago they can't find me anymore..
The information you gave is good, I wondered about bait restrictions etc..
I usually go for three night every two weeks, but I suppose they are the rules so I'll adjust..🙂
But won't get a ticket for's worth waiting though,I don't know the stock but I really liked the seven oaks venues, although they are most likely completely different now.

Ive been a member on and off for about 43 years. One thing that used to put some off was no night fishing in 1st year.

48hr max and then 24 off - no leaders or tapered lines for distance casting, no baiting up in out of bounds areas, no dogs, no fires

Most are interested in the Sevenoaks lakes - there's four of them on that complex although only two are really fishable/have anything sizeable. The East and West are the main lakes and both are very tough but different waters but have their rewards. There are a few favoured swims, especially on the east and two separate tight-knit cliques, one for the east and one for the west lake - all very tight lipped and secret squirrel. Despite the 48 hr rule you'll often see the same old faces rotating the favoured swims.

What specifically did you want to know ?

You could submit an enquiry via the BDAS website.
Scroll down to the bottom of the home page, dark grey section, there at the bottom is .. information, click on this, and to the right of the BDAS Clothing store is DROP US A LINE, with a CAPTCHA (NON ROBOT) security thingy.

That should put you in contact with someone who may be able to provide more information on the clubs rules.

Hope that helps.
