Clapham Angling Preservation Society.

We are the Proud Web Site Sponsors of the Clapham Angling Preservation Society.

Clapham Angling Preservation Society (C.A.P.S.) Is a voluntary organisation that was set up in 1993, it relies totally on Donations, Gifts, Grants, Sponsorship & Support from both inside & outside the sport to enable it to function. Its primary aims are to protect & promote angling on Clapham Common in South London. Not only for the present, but for future generations of anglers.

One of the main benefits of angling to both young & old alike is that it gives an all round awareness of the environment & the things that go on in that environment as a whole. This is of a special benefit in an urbanised area such as Clapham, where open space is at a premium...

The reopening of the pond comes after a 2 year closure, to regenerate the pond by dredging out many decades of silt, the introduction of over 500 hundred aquatic plants, the building of new swims for able as well as disabled anglers & the restocking with a diversity of coarse fish to turn it into a general coarse fishery.

Also the formation of a wetland area next to the pond to encourage other forms of aquatic life that do not spend all their lives in water to take up residence & colonise the area.

COMMENT BY KATE HOEY MP.

"The newly reopened Pond is a credit especially to the Clapham Angling Preservation Society which has put in so much work to give an opportunity for local children and adults alike to enjoy their fishing in an inner city setting. It is an example of what is achievable when there is a "genuine partnership between agencies". "Fishing is not just about going along to a pond with a rod; it is also about the surrounding environment and looking after it."

   
The project was made viable thanks to joint funding from the Environment Agencies Urban Fisheries Development Project & the London Borough of Lambeth.
