Southdown Angling Association East Sussex Angling at its best


The Association currently has three still waters available to members. There is no close season and all may be fished all year round.

Curls Farm, Ripe. The Association’s premier still water fishery. Approximately three acres in area, but shallow, being no more than a metre deep. Never the less, it holds a large head of mainly carp, both mirror and common, up to well in excess of 20 pounds. Also present are some good sized roach and rudd, large eels and a few tench.

North Farm Pool, Marle Green. A very picturesque water, much liked by members who enjoy a peaceful session fishing in beautiful surroundings. Again approximately three acres in area and shallow, with a depth of about a metre, it holds a quite a large head of mirror, common and ghost carp to high double figures, skimmer bream, roach, rudd, tench, some nice perch and large eels.

Cinderford Pond. A pretty little fishery, with an island. About three quarters of an acre, with depths up to two metres and extensive lily pads. It contains plentiful stocks of mainly small roach, rudd, tench and brown goldfish, with the occasional larger fish. An ideal water for the youngster, or even the more experienced angler needing a confidence boost, as sport can be almost guaranteed.

Sea Anglers Demand Fair Deal in new Fisheries Bill (Thu, 15 Mar 2018)
The Angling Trust has called on the government to give sea angling a fair deal ahead of the publication of a white paper setting out proposals for a new UK fisheries bill. In a briefing sent to the Fisheries Minister, George Eustice, the Trust has urged the government to follow the example of other countries and recognise the potential of developing world-class recreational fishing in the UK now that they will no longer be constrained by the EU Common Fisheries Policy.
