  Holmesdale Angling and Conservation Society is a small and friendly Society, originally founded in the the 1940`s. at that time our principal fishery LONGFORD LAKE (also called Chipstead Lake ) was still a working gravel pit although it has been many  years since extraction last took place and was then called the Holmesdale Angling Society until a few years ago when the membership changed the name to the present title.

  The Society covers a range of angling interests including competition fishing with matches throughout the Season. The majority of our members are pleasure and specimen anglers with roach, bream , carp and pike being the target species. Holmesdale Angling and Conservation Society has negotiated arrangements with other clubs in the region which provides our members with access to their waters.

So by being a member of HACS you have access to other clubs waters. So being a HACS member you will have opportunity to fish a variety of waters to which you would not normally have access to.
