Hadley Angling and Preservation Society
Jack's Lake, Barnet

Welcome to HAPS

Welcome to the Hadley Angling and Preservation Society website. HAPS Is a small, friendly club that was formed in 1982 to control fishing at Jack's Lake in Hadley Woods, Barnet, Hertfordshire and arrange matches and coach outings for club members.


Jack's Lake, BarnetThe lake now provides 44 pegs, 27 of which are fishable on a day ticket, the remainder being available only to club members. The main species are carp (to 26lb), bream (to 7lb), and roach. There are also tench (6lb), chub (4lb), pike (14lb), rudd, gudgeon and very occasional eels and barbel. Matches are generally won with over 10lbs, but pleasure sessions usually produce much higher weights of mixed fish and those targeting carp generally have multiple catches.


As our Fishery is open to all, we do ask that everyone looks after their surroundings and treats any wildlife or plantlife with care whilst they are fishing. HAPS regularly organises works parties to maintain the fishery and its environment.
