Welcome to Advanced Angling – The Famous Burghfield Fishing Complex

Updated Advanced Angling Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

24th March 2020

‘The Burghfield Complex is now temporarily closed due to the updated Covid-19 Government policies – we will update you when the situation changes.’

You probably heard the news yesterday and as we anticipated, the government is locking down the country from today except for specific essential travel etc. Therefore as of today the Burghfield Complex is now temporarily closed. See Advanced Angling statement above.

We are speaking with EA, local police and our bailiff team today to implement our security plan for the Burghfield Complex.

Blue Pool and Gold Lake bookings: we will contact you directly on a week by week basis to make arrangements/reschedule sessions. Thank you for your patience – this is a situation which is being reviewed by government again in 3 weeks time.

Members: non-compliance will lead to loss of membership.

Thank you for your understanding and compliance. If we all follow the new rules these measures will be reviewed according to updated government policy.

Keep safe,


Phil Greenacre
Advanced Angling Group Director


Based at the famous Burghfield complex, near Reading which includes the renowned Blue Pool, Gold Lake, the Burghfield Main Lake and the Burghfield River Kennet, we offer outstanding carp fishing venues and we believe one of the best river syndicates in the south of England.

We ensure that all are maintained and managed to the highest standards, to create the best possible fishing environment.

Blue Pool and Gold Lake are our open carp fisheries where you can book the whole lake exclusively for 24hrs – up to 7 day sessions. Boasting a massive head of big British carp to over 42lbs, these wonderful lakes offer a good challenge for the experienced carp fishermen.

For the Advanced Angler who is targeting even bigger British carp to over 62lb’s, then Burghfield Main Lake is the syndicate to be on.

If you desire river carp, big chub or massive barbel then the Burghfield River Kennet syndicate is the membership for you.

Our team are professional and experienced Anglers who are keen to help you. We believe it is a privilege to look after these venues and hope you will come and enjoy them with us.
