Longfield Lake is controlled by Tonbridge and District Angling and Fish Preservation Society. An excellent 50 peg, tree lined coarse fishery offering some of the best bream fishing in the South East. Bags of 100lb are common with fish to 7lb. The other main species at Longfield are pike to 30lb, some carp to 27lb, tench to 7lb, perch to 3lb, roach, rudd and bleak.
Pegs around the island tend to be the best for bream in the summer. Tactics for bream and tench - lay a bed of groundbait using a large feeder. Then change to a smaller feeder and fish a redworm tipped with maggot or caster. Pellet also works well. Winter pike with sea dead baits.
* fishing dawn until dusk
* no night fishing.
