Passie's Pond

Passie's Ponds are located on the Coombes Road between Lancing College and Steyning.

There are 2 Lakes, 1 day ticket lake with 50 pegs and the other a match lake with 68 pegs so this venue caters for both the pleasure and match anglers.
The lakes were dug out in an area of spring waters in the lowland of the Adur Valley and have been awarded "Center of Excellence".
There are adequate car parks and toilets on site and access is via a private track which is open to anglers only.
In addition there is an on-site tackle shop which has a selection of accessories and baits such as pastes, luncheon meat, sweetcorn and a small stock of maggots.
Casters and larger quantities of bait can be ordered from the shop in advance.

Expert tuition is also available at Passie's Pond by resident coach Tom & by Jason Kirk
(Tel: Tom on 07801650965 or Jason on 07752758753).

Day Ticket Lake :

About five acres in size and with 50 permanent pegs.
The average overall depth is about 4 feet,but has a deeper channel which runs up to nine feet deep through the middle.
An ideal water for pleasure anglers because no club matches are held on it and there is no pre-booking of pegs.
There are a good head of Mirrors, Commons and Ghost Carp up to over 20lbs,also tench to 10lbs, Perch to 4lbs,and decent Crucian Carp, roach and rudd.
Theres also a fair head of chub which are in the 3lbs to 5lbs range, although larger fish to 7lbs have been caught.
Because the Main Lake is generally shallow it is popular with waggler and pole,although anglers wanting to reach greater distances use either weighted floats or feeder fished close to the island using swimfeeder and double floating maggot.
The carp are frequently caught near the bank - as are the big tench - with the carp liking luncheon meat, either bread flake or floating crust, flavoured sweetcorn and carp pellets - boilies, trout pellets and chum mixer are not allowed.
Early in 1999 an 18lb 7oz pure white Ghost Carp was taken.
Although fishery owner Trevor Passmore has seen several carp over 20lbs. The tench seem to go for worms, so fishing a nice Dendrabaena or pieces of sweetcorn over a bed of chopped worms in any of the pegs near the reeds is a favoured technique.
Crucians average about 1lb 8oz but run much larger and in 1999 a 3lbs 4oz specimen has been taken.
The crucians tend to favour float-fished bread punch or bread flake fished either on or just off the bottom.
Waggler fishing four or five rod lengths out tends to result in catches of roach and skimmers which often reach 30lbs-plus.
The best catches are usually taken on maggot or caster

Match Lake :

Available for day-ticket fishing when not being used for competitions,this water was built next to the Main lake.
It is about six acres in size and designed like a canal with depths running to six feet at its deepest point, with the bottom of the lake having been shelved.
There are 68 permanent pegs which have been spaced a minimum of 15 metres apart.
The fishery has been constructed in such a way as to provide good sport in both summer and winter and is stocked with commons and mirrors between 4oz and 10lbs, bream to 6lbs, quality tench to 5lbs and roach, chub and perch.
The bigger carp are often taken by anglers fish close in to the near bank using worm, luncheon meat or sweetcorn!
