We are an angling association founded in 1890 as a freshwater angling club, and one of the oldest clubs in Bexhill.
For many years, we were based at 3 Marine Parade, Hastings, but in 1970 we moved into our current headquarters on the beach, and since then, we have extended and extensively refurbished our clubhouse.
We have an active membership, both for Beach and Boat Fishing in addition to a full complement of fishing boats on our allotted space on the beach, and a waiting list filled with individuals hoping to secure a beach space by the clubhouse.
We went into business more than 100 years ago during which we have had several members of our club being selected to partake in fishing competitions in both the Beach section and the Boat section across the globe.
We organize angling competitions at Bexhill Sea between our members and other associations throughout the year along with the changing social event calendar. This year though, the event will be held on Saturday, 9th June 2018, and we cannot wait to offer you with one of the most amazing fishing experiences that will include great fishing gifts.
We take pride in having had one of our members being selected to go and fish in the Home Nations event held in 2017 in Wales in addition to the World Championship that was held in the coastal Castellon city in Spain in 2016. That’s not all. In 2015, two of our junior members had the opportunity of being selected to for a fishing competition held in Ireland. We pride ourselves in the fact that one of our club members went to Ireland to partake in a fishing competition not forgetting that one of our club members holds a British Record, a record he has been with since 1973.
Recently, we initiated a Junior Section with the purpose of encouraging youngsters to come along and learn more about fish and marine life conservation. Last year, we had a junior membership of 79. In 2015, we had 14 of our junior members selected to participate in the England Talent Pathway scheme that is run by the Angling Trust. Amazingly, these juniors are only 14 years old.
As an angling club, we own a fleet of boats that are available for hire at £10.50 per person per day. The total membership of our club, including members of beach angling, is now well over 1400. Besides being affiliated with the British Conger club, we are a member of the Angling Trust also.
Our company has a huge section of stalls that sell delicious international cuisine coupled with a host of unique shopping and other gift ideas.
The June calendar explodes with some angling competition for people of all ages and skills. We have an excellent booking policy in place where you can go ahead and make bookings whether manually or online.
We do not deal strictly with anglers. We welcome non-anglers and families to come and enjoy sea angling with us.
