Chairman's Introduction

It is with great pleasure and pride that I introduce Farnham Angling Society to you, a society that has continued to grow steadily in size and reputation since its formation in 1906.

With our fifteen stillwaters, varying from picturesque estate lakes and larger impressive gravel pits, to small, well stocked ponds, we are able to provide match, pleasure and specialist anglers with over 160 acres of Stillwater fishing and 7 miles of river fishing.

Our excellent stillwater fisheries offer the opportunity to explore a variety of different fishing techniques for 364 days a year on many waters. With around 500 swims to choose from and secure parking on many of our venues, you can look forward to relaxing and productive fishing. The river angler is catered for with two miles of the River Loddon, a section of the River Thames and over four miles of the River Wey. These rivers offer some excellent angling opportunities.


We have a very active Junior Section where the younger members can learn a thing or two from the older members and the Match Section has enjoyed some great competition with outstanding catches during the last few seasons.

The Society has a strong commitment to providing facilities for disabled anglers, with a number of our fisheries now featuring specially constructed swims, where priority is given to disabled anglers to fish, both in safety and comfort. Additionally, all our toilet facilities are wheelchair accessible.

Farnham Angling Society offers a wide choice of great fishing in pleasant surroundings for anglers of all types and abilities. So whether you are looking for an excellent bag of Bream, Crucian’s or small Carp, are hunting down that elusive personal best Carp or Barbel or are in pursuit of predators such as Pike and Catfish, I believe Farnham Angling Society is an excellent choice for you.
