The Association is pleased to be able to confirm the clubs enclosed stillwaters are once again to be open to members from Wednesday 13th May subject to the provisos below and compliance with Goverment guidance upon social distancing which must be followed carefully.
Normanhurst cannot reopen on Wednesday due to a problem with access, the bridge needs to be repaired as it is unsafe. It is hoped that this will be completed over the coming weekend if so the water should be open on Monday.
Buckshole and Harmers Pond.
The club is waiting upon HBC for confirmation that we may commence fish in the park again and for them to unlock te gates at Harmers; their response is expected after mid-day on Tuesday. Provided no object is raised by HBC Buckshole reservoir & Harmers pond will open 12 noon on Wednesday 13th May no angler is permitted to fish these waters before this time. We have had a massive interest in fishing Wednesday & Thursday night and all 8 places for both nights are sold.
Established in 1895, the association provides its members and day ticket anglers with various lakes and rivers to fish throughout Hastings, Bexhill and the surrounding area.
We currently have seven lakes that provide a mixture of species at specimen weights to suit all anglers’ preferences. As well as the lakes run by the association we also offer members the ability to fish various stretches of river in the surrounding area.
The association provides waters to suit all ages, abilities and interests so there’s something for everyone.
As an association that is run purely for the anglers benefit the fishing is provided at fantastic value for its members with adult memberships cost just over £1 per week!!
As an association we are always looking to improve our waters and provide exactly what the anglers want (within reason), that said we are a small organisation that is run as efficiently as possible and charge a price that offers great value for money, we aren’t a commercial organisation that are able to offer a café, perfectly level swims, on-site tackle shops, parking right next to the swim or endless huge carp. However, we think what we do offer far outweighs all of that, fantastic waters that get you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life without there being another 10 anglers all sat within an underarm chuck of your rods! Some of the waters are tucked away in splendid countryside whilst others are in local parks.

Just a reminder that Buckshole will be closed on Sunday 29/9/19, all day from 7am until 6pm for a match there, all the swims will be in use. Furthermore, we will also be closing the double swim on the roadside due to the number of anglers taking part, if for any reason it's not wanted we will open it to other anglers, but be warned it's closed unless we say otherwise. Also anglers fishing the match will need two keepnets, one for carp one for silvers .
