Follow the A24 until you get to the Washington Roundabout. Take the Steyning (A283) exit. Follow this road to the end until you get to a roundabout. From here take the 4th exit into Maudlin Lane. Follow this lane up to the 'T' junction and turn left into Annington Road. Passies Pond and Church Farm are approx. 3 miles along the road.
Passies Pond consists of 2 coarse fishing lakes, the largest of which has been stocked over the years with carp and tench as well as chub, roach, rudd and perch. The fish in the match lake are smaller but there are plenty of them. Restictions on amount of bait and groundbait allowed. Barbless hooks and carp friendly keepnets only.
Last season saw the introduction of several thousand hybrids of 6-10oz each. They have grown quickly and now average 1lb 8oz and provided excellent winter sport taking various baits with corn being the most effective. As the weather warms up, they are increasingly falling for pellet and paste. The larger ones tend to be found aound the Bank while the smaller ones prefer the Road and Bunker banks. In addition 3,000 small carp have been introduced to the Match Lake.
A new 22 peg lake has just been finished and will be open for use in the spring of 2006.
On your Passies Pond article it states there are pike in the venue. This is true but it's is to keep the roach and rudd at bay and are not to be fished for under any circumstances. I found this out when I caught one by mistake.
Also it has been closed due to khv, its due to open in March 2010.
Christopher - January 2010
Have had some good success at Passies this year in Janurary and
February. So far I have had 6 day sessions at Passies Ponds, all on the main lake. Here is how they went:
- On the first visit I landed 9 carp to 8lb and 2 bream.
- On the second visit I had 5 carp to 7lb, 2 bream and a 2lb tench.
- On the third visit I landed 3 carp to 8lb and a bream.
- The fourth visit was really special, I landed 11 carp, including 4 doubles
(10lb 7oz mirror, 11lb 9oz common, 10lb 15oz mirror and a new PB 16lb 9oz
common). It was my best winter session ever at Passies.
- The fifth trip was also a good one; I landed 8 carp, including 2 doubles
(11lb 1oz mirror and a 15lb 7oz mirror). I also landed a 1lb bream.
- On the sixth trip, I landed 4 carp - biggest 8lb 1oz and 3 bream to 2lb.
I caught all the fish legering, using a variety of different hair-rigged
baits. e.g. corn, spam, 10mm pellets, antbait pellets. I caught them from
open water and close to the island.
