• Fishing will remain as a legitimate outdoor recreation or exercise for up to 6 people, or in a larger group if everyone present is from the same two households. A ‘household’ can include the support bubble linked to that household [if eligible].

  • Match fishing (in freshwater and at sea) can go ahead as an organised outdoor sports gathering from March 29th. Organised outdoor sports will not be subject to the gatherings limits but must be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies to ensure appropriate steps, including risk assessments, are taken to make it Covid secure in line with the law. At this stage, these gatherings must only include participants – not spectators.

Please continue to observe the local rules  – Stay Safe.


Please note both Long Copse ponds will be closed on 18th April all day.

                   Welcome to the Leatherhead & District Angling Society                       

The 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.   Concessions with Willinghurst Fisheries near Guildford, and More House Farm, make the membership fee real value for money.

LDAS can offer something for everyone who has an interest in fishing, from a Match Angler to a Junior. We have a variety of activities for Juniors, and courses and events 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.
