12th May 2020 - Coronavirus Update - Resumption of Fishing

With the relaxation of the Government restrictions at last we can go fishing again, albeit with some restrictions in order to maintain "social distancing" and reduce the risks from COVID-19.

Accordingly, all Cinder Hill Fly Fishing waters will once again be open to members on Wednesday 13th May. However, of necessity, additional temporary rules have been put in place and members should please take a look in the Members Notices page.




In view of the latest Government instruction for everyone to stay at home, only go out once a day for exercise and stopping all non essential travel, we have no choice but to close the lakes for fishing.

They will remain closed until Government instructions allow us to resume our activities. Stocking has also been temporarily suspended.

We hope that the actions imposed upon us all help to bring this virus under control in the not too distant future, allowing us to enjoy our freedom and fishing once again.

We will review the situation at every new Government announcement and let members know accordingly.

For now, look after yourselves, stay safe and well. 

Kevin Reeves, Chairman, Cinder Hill Fly Fishing, 24th March 2020



Welcome to the website of Cinder Hill Fly Fishing. We hope you like what you see.

First formed In 1989, as the Cinder Hill Fly Fishing, an offshoot from the Sussex Branch of the then Salmon & Trout Association (now Salmon & Trout Conservation UK) the purpose of the organisation is to provide affordable fly fishing for trout for the members in beautiful surroundings and to this end, much of the essential site maintenance work is carried out by the members themselves.

In 2019, the working title of "Cinder Hill Fly Fishing" was adopted in order to make membership more attractive to potential members.
