Old Bury Hill

nr Dorking, Surrey, RH4 3JU

There are four lakes to choose from at Bury Hill, which is part of a 200-year-old estate set in beautiful Surrey countryside. The Old Lake, Temple (which is run as a syndicate), Milton and Bonds offer superb fishing for pleasure, match and specimen anglers all year round.

Bury Hill is home to big shoals of bream, and carp to 38lb, but its reputation is built on some fantastic tench fishing, from it’s picturesque banks or one of a fleet of punts that can be pre-booked. If you want to watch a float surrounded by bubbles on a misty tench-fishers’ dawn, before it lifts and slides away, this is the place for you. Maggots, casters, worms, bread, corn, luncheon meat and pellets all work on the main lake and Milton and Bonds, where you’ll also find some nice crucians, plus perch, roach and rudd.
You don’t need to cast far, so a simple float set-up, or short pole is the best choice.
In winter, Bury Hill provides excellent predator fishing, with pike and zander into double figures. If you’re new to predator fishing, tuition is available on site, as are coarse fishing lessons for individuals or groups. Phone ahead to book, though.

All the lakes have lily pads, which tench love, so go for five or six-pound main line, with three to four-pound hooklinks on your float or pole rigs, with a reliable size 18 or 16 barbless hook.

Make sure you plumb the swim accurately to check the depth. Then you can set your float a couple of inches overdepth so that your hookbait sits on the bottom where the tench feed. Beginners wanting lots of bites and a mixed bag of fish should head to for Milton lake.

The jungle area on the main lake is best for big bags of tench, peg numbers 10-18 or 37-45 in open water for the bream shoals.

Barbless hooks only. No fixed leads or method feeders. No particles except sweetcorn, hemp and pellets. No cat or dogmeat. Single barbless hooks only for predators.
