Due to low membership turnover this year and the unusually high number of applicants remaining on the waiting list after membership renewal, we have decided to suspend applications for the time being. We apologise for the inconvenience and hope to re-open the waiting list early in 2023.
Quality catch and release Trout fishing in East and West Sussex Sussex and access to prestigious Game Fishing in Hampshire on the Itchen, and Test.
Before acceptance, all applicants are invited for a meeting with the relevant officer of the Society, to ensure mutual suitability for membership. During the Covid-19 crisis the meeting may be conducted by telephone. There is a waiting list, membership numbers are limited to ensure pleasant fishing in unspoilt surroundings. The Trout Section Membership is full for 22/23 and there is a significant residual waiting list. Applications received now, may not be considered for membership until the 2024/5 season, due to the surge in popularity of angling and reduced membership turn-over during the Covid-19 crisis.
