Welcome to

Hastings and Bexhill

District Freshwater Angling Association



We now understand that the latest Government advice is that angling is regarded as exercise and as such is now permitted subject to observation of the following rules:-

1) You must stay local

2) You may only meet one other person

3) You must observe social distancing at all times

4) No night fishing is permitted whatsoever.


As a consequence we are now able to re-open our waters to our members. Day tickets have to continue to be made available at some waters and these may be busy at the weekends, swims will be on a first come first served basis.


Follow Government guidelines


Work Party

To all members there will be a work party at Bucks on Sunday 28/2/21. There will be interruptions to anyone fishing there,you may be asked to move because of the work,please obey any request to move without complaining,the work is being done for the benefit of all members,you could even lend a hand.Thanking you all for your cooperation.


Please note on club waters junior anglers under 12 years of age may only fish when accompanied by a responsible adult member.
Thank you

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.
