Welcome to the Leatherhead & District Angling Society

Leatherhead & District Angling Society was founded in 1947 and offers fantastic fishing along three miles of the River Mole, and three excellent still water fisheries. Associations with Willinghurst Fisheries near Guildford and Morehouse Farm, make the membership fee real value for money.

LDAS can offer something for everyone who has an interest in fishing, from Match Angler to Junior, and from Pleasure angler to Specimen Hunter. We have a full season of match fixtures, a variety of activities for the Juniors, and courses and competitions for the whole family.

The River Mole has been described as the best kept secret in Southern England and is a positive aquarium of species. It really can be a superb winter fishery when many of the other rivers and still waters in the area have slowed down. Our stretches contain good quantities of Chub, Roach, Dace, Pike and Perch, with Bream, Barbel and Carp also showing.

Our ponds at Ashtead and Bookham are popular with pleasure anglers enjoying good catches of Carp, Tench, Crucians, Perch, Rudd and Roach.

LDAS is always happy to welcome new members so please browse through the website to find out a lot more about the club and its waters.  You can also buy  Gift Vouchers for friends and family, for full membership or for any amount towards a membership.

Please note we DO NOT issue Day Tickets on any of our waters. Please call the Membership Secretary if you want to come and fish for a day before joining.

    Hi Susie, At Long Copse, Bookham, we have access via Eastwick Drive to a pathway leading to several wooden platforms. If you need wheelchair access then this is also available from the Spring Grove side of the ponds.
    Ashtead Park has a large wooden disabled platform, but is approx. 500 mtrs from the car park. Please let me know if you need any further information.
