SOUTHDOWN ANGLING ASSOCIATION
Welcome to one of Sussex's top coarse angling clubs, which was founded in 1997 following the merger of two other local clubs, namely the Compleat Angler F.C. of Eastbourne and the Hailsham Angling Association.
The Association are members of both the Angling Trust and Fish Legal who work on all anglers behalf to safeguard our waters and the fish therein which we attempt to capture.
We have something to offer every fisherperson, be it a meandering stretch of the River Cuckmere, or maybe the Wallers or Pevensey Havens on the Pevensey Levels will take your fancy. Should you prefer a secluded lake or pond, set in the depths of the East Sussex countryside we can offer you Curls Farm, Marle Green or Cinderford Pond.
With specimen fish of all species, a pro-active and enthusiastic match section, or maybe just a peaceful afternoon or evening float fishing on one of our many waters, the Southdown Angling Association caters for all who enjoy the pleasures fishing has to offer.
With trained angling coaches amongst our ranks, we offer a safe environment for younger and older fishermen or women to improve their angling skills. Our aim is to promote angling throughout Sussex and the UK as a whole.
Please do not hesitate to contact your committee for further infomation via the contact page, or alternatively telephone the Polegate Angling Centre (01323 647187) who will be more than happy to assist.

ATTENTION ALL SAA MEMBERS
In view of the latest Government regulations to try and control the spread of the coronavirus epidemic and taking into account advice issued by the Angling Trust, all Southdown AA waters are closed until further notice.
There are no exceptions. This strictly only affects Curls Farm, Marle Green and Cinderford Pond, as all our other waters are currently subject to the statuary river close season. All planned competitions are likewise cancelled.
We will review the situation as advice from the Government and the Angling Trust is updated.
We had planned to hold our AGM and Social Evening on 1st May 2020, but this is now also cancelled, but we woulde hope to be able to hold a suitable replacement event at some time in the future once restrictions are relaxed / lifted.
We thank members for their continued support, trust you will all keep safe and well and will endeavour to advise you as soon as things return to near normality and we can all go fishing again.
