Welcome to


Est. 1989






Whenever possible, the Syndicate, in conjunction with the Sussex Branch of Salmon & Trout Conservation UK, run a series of Adult and Junior Beginners Courses for those wishing to experience the joys of fly fishing for the first time.

The courses are "tasters" for those of all ages wishing to try their hand at fly fishing. Each follows a structured lesson plan and will be delivered in a safe environment at the Syndicate lakes. Our courses are fun and designed to provide the pupil with the confidence, skills and technical/practical knowledge to enable them to safely and competently go fishing.

The courses commence with Health & Safety briefing, followed by tackle selection and assembly, prior to learning the basic Roll and Overhead casts, before moving on to the eagerly anticipated actual fishing with ongoing coaching and mentoring.

Angling Development Board

Angling Development is a key role of the Angling Trust now that it has merged with the Angling Development Board (ADB). Their development work is supported by Sport England, the Environment Agency, British Waterways and Sports Coach UK.

To find out more about the scheme and to locate licensed coaches on a National basis, visit the Angling Trust Development web pages.


The Sussex Branch of the Salmon & Trout Association is also Clubmark accredited.


The Sussex Branch of S&TC UK applied for and achieved “Clubmark” accreditation in June 2013 and is one of the few fishing clubs in Sussex to have achieved “Clubmark” status.


     Clubmark serves two main functions.

     It gives parents, guardians and carers the confidence that their children

     will be attending a safe environment where they can learn new skills.

     It is also a sign that the organisation is working to ensure all its

     members reach their full potential.

     Sports clubs must meet rigorous set standards to achieve and

     maintain their Clubmark status.
