Crowborough & District Anglers AssociationCrowborough and District Angler's Association began life in 1948 when a group of young men returned from the war. Intitially 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 eleven stillwaters at seven locations, one reservoir, two sections of stream fishing, access to fourteen miles of the River Rother and a section of the Royal Military Canal in its' portfolio. Six of the waters have no close season. They have a long and well documented history, an enthusiastic and hard working Committee and some very keen junior anglers.

They support, and are supported by local tackle dealers. The club record fish range from 1968 to the present day. They are easy to contact and reply to messages as quick as they can. In 2011 they set up their own facebook page, which has become increasingly popular amongst the members. Matches are run throughout the year for Sea Anglers and a summer series of Wednesday evening matches for the seniors. In addition there is a Sunday series of matches for seniors that run from March to December. Junior anglers have a summer series of matches on Saturday mornings.

For the specimen hunters, there are competitions that run all year round. Many different types of membership are avilable and you can join online. They also run a buddies programme for those who are new to angling or for those who wish to improve their skills.

The Ouse Angling Preservation SocietyThe Ouse Angling Preservation Society was formed in 1875, and gives access to coarse and game (mainly sea-trout) fishing on several miles of the River Ouse in the South East of England.

Their club waters begin about a mile and a half north of Lewes, through to the limit of the tidal reach at Barcombe Mills (including most of the Hamsey Cut). As well as Barcombe Mills Pool and surrounding streams they control a mile or so above this, and also have a stretch on the east bank by the Anchor Inn, including the weir. In addition to the main river they offer about a mile and a half on the Bevern Stream, from its confluence with the Ouse opposite Barcombe reservoir upstream to a point above Clappers bridge at Barcombe Cross. The Society shares waters with the Copthorne and District Angling Society, giving access to most of the River Ouse between the Anchor Inn and Newick, and some stillwaters in the Copthorne area.

Annual club permits run from May 1st and cost 55 with concessions available for seniors and juniors. Winter club permits run from Nov. 1st to March 14th and cost 30. Day tickets are available and cost 7 for adults and seniors, 3.50 for juniors.
