Important Message:

Henfield angling society recommend anglers read and take on board the latest guidelines from the Angling Trust available on their website www.anglingtrust.net

Anglers are reminded that the Close Season is from 15 March to 15 June inclusive.

It is illegal to fish on rivers for coarse fish during this period and the Environment Agency make regular checks. 

Anyone caught fishing illegally will face prosecution, a fine and confiscation of their fishing tackle. 

There is no closed season on our ponds and lakes. Enjoy your fishing on those venues all year round 

06/08/2023 - St. George's Park Lake is now open again for fishing.  After some recent rain the water level has risen again.  Tight lines and good luck.

At St Georges park Lake - Members must stay well clear of the Pump house where there are some seats for the residents. Therefore please fish at least 50 metres away from it; also do not fish within 25 metres of the road on the far bank.i.e., the first swim

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.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to know more. You can download a membership application form or you can join straightaway at many tackle shops in the area.
