Cranleigh Angling Society

Cranleigh Angling Society is based in the Villiage of Cranleigh in Surrey. Members can fish many waters in and around the Cranleigh area.

The Club has access to three great coarse fishing venues:

The Fisheries. The first pond has enough room for 15 anglers and is full to the brim with Tench, Crucian Carp, Perch, Roach, Rudd and Gudgeon. The second pond has enough room for a dozen or so anglers and is stocked with mainly Carp between 5lb and 25lb, although Tench, Perch, Roach,Rudd, Pike and large double figure Grass Carp are present.

Springbok: A water that is rented from the Springbok Estate and contains, among other species, some of the hardest fighting Ghost Carp you will have come across ... a water that that must be experienced.

Willinghurst: This impressive commercial water boasts 11 well stocked lakes.

Membership of the Society entitles members to 3 days fishing on production of the membership handbook.

They have a very comprehensive match diary, matches usually attracting 10-20 anglers, which makes for a very friendly atmosphere. They have many friendly matches with other local clubs including Shamley Green AS, Rudgwick AS, Godalming AS, and Dorking AS taking us to many more fairly local rivers, ponds and canals.
