SURREY

Surrey offers more than reasonable Stillwater opportunities for coarse and trout fishermen but many waters are private, not least because their close proximity to London means the demand is great. Similarly many season permit fishingsalready have fartoo long waiting lists. CAMBERLEY Mytchett LakeC DT:BKTWA
