Welcome to one of Sussex's top coarse angling clubs, which was founded in 1997 following the merger of two other local clubs, namely the Compleat Angler F.C. of Eastbourne and the Hailsham Angling Association.
The Association are members of both the Angling Trust and Fish Legal who work on all anglers behalf to safeguard our waters and the fish therein which we attempt to capture.
We have something to offer every fisherperson, be it a meandering stretch of the River Cuckmere, or maybe the Wallers or Pevensey Havens on the Pevensey Levels will take your fancy. Should you prefer a secluded lake or pond, set in the depths of the East Sussex countryside we can offer you Curls Farm, Marle Green or Cinderford Pond.
With specimen fish of all species, a pro-active and enthusiastic match section, or maybe just a peaceful afternoon or evening float fishing on one of our many waters, the Southdown Angling Association caters for all who enjoy the pleasures fishing has to offer.
With trained angling coaches amongst our ranks, we offer a safe environment for younger and older fishermen or women to improve their angling skills. With angling workshops planned for the near future, in conjuction with the Angling Trust, we aim to promote angling throughout Sussex and the UK as a whole.
Please do not hesitate to contact your committee for further infomation via the contact page, or alternatively telephone the Polegate Angling Centre (01323 486379) who will be more than happy to assist.
