Welcome to our website
We are a long established angling society which welcomes new members to try our river and stillwater fisheries. We provide coarse fishing for pleasure anglers and specimen hunters. There are also friendly matches for both seniors and juniors.As well as most species of coarse fish there is a run of sea trout and a head of wild brown trout that provide a challenge for the game fisherman.
We fish many miles of the river Adur in West Sussex, from below Henfield up to Shermanbury and Wineham on the Eastern arm; and right through to Partridge Green (Lock Estate) on the Western arm.We have both tidal and non-tidal sections of the river. In the summer grey mullet can often be seen coming up with the tide. They are also an interesting challenge! Carp and pike to over 20lb are not uncommon and the bream and tench go to over 5lb. There are also good chub and perch, roach, rudd, dace and gudgeon.
We have stillwaters on three different sites in the surrounding area, all within 8 miles of Henfield. Our stillwaters contain double - figure common and mirror carp as well as crucians, grass carp, tench, perch, roach and rudd.
