Sussex Piscatorial Society

The Sussex Piscatorial Society is the premier fishing Society in the South of England. Formed in 1891, it is also one of the oldest fishing societies in continued existence in the world.

The Society currently has a combined total of 71 acres of lakes and approximately 21.5 miles of rivers to fish all in stunning settings and offering uncrowded fishing for discerning fishermen who value conservation, care of the environment and consideration and respect for their fellow fishermen and their quarry.

We are a friendly community of like-minded, dedicated fishers, all of whom respect the natural beauty and the flora and fauna of the locations where we are privileged to fish. We also respect our quarry – aiming to release fish quickly and return them safely. The Society manages its waters with a dedicated team of Water Keepers, but does ask willing members to assist on occasional work parties.

The Society can also offer support to those who want to develop their fishing skills. The Coarse Section arranges an instructional Children’s Day and the Trout Section hold fishing clinics over the season, given by Society Members who are qualified Game Angling Instructors and other angling professionals.

The Society often holds a Summer BBQ at one of the waters and there are a Winter Social evenings and AGM annnually.
