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. The lake is available to members and day tickets. The club arranges matches and coach outings for club members.
The 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 (18lb), 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.
