Crowborough and District Angler's Association began life in 1948 when a group of young men returned from the war. Initially the club was set up to provide day trips for sea anglers. But over time freshwater fishing began to play a greater role and coarse waters were added to the roster. These days the club can offer both freshwater, saltwater and some stream based Trout fishing.
The Club currently has fourteen stillwaters at eight locations, two reservoirs, two stretches of river fishing, plus access to seven miles of the River Rother, as well as six miles of the Royal Military Canal in its' portfolio. The majority of the stillwaters have no close season.
We have a long and well documented history, an enthusiastic and hard working Committee and some very keen junior anglers. We support, and are supported by our local tackle dealers. Our club record fish range from 1968 to the present day.
We are easy to contact and reply to messages as quickly as we can. In 2011 we set up our own Facebook page, which has become increasingly popular amongst the members. In 2014 we set up our Twitter handle.
We run matches throughout the year for Sea Anglers. We run a summer series of Wednesday evening matches for the seniors. In addition there is a Sunday series of matches for seniors that run from May to January. Junior anglers have a summer series of matches on Saturday mornings. We have matches that are just for the ladies too. For the specimen hunters, there are competitions that run all year round.
We have many different types of membership on our membership page and are sure to have a category that suits you. You can join online today. We also run a buddies programme for those who are new to angling or for those who wish to improve their skills.
Check out our News page for the most up to date news about the Club. We run working parties from time to time and an extra pair of hands are always welcome.
