The club has a keen beach and boat angling and social community. We can accommodate boats up to 23 feet in length in our secure compound provided they are fitted with beach keels, as boats are beach launched. We have workshops for boat maintenance and fitting of keels by yourself if required, and secure storage areas for outboard engines and fishing gear. The area around Hastings uniquely offers a very wide variety of fishing, see our club records and photo gallery. You will be in good company in this very friendly club.  Our members come from all walks of life and can offer help and advice if required. Our membership fees are very reasonable.

**New Bass Rules: From 1st January the new rules from the EU come into force. All bass will have to be released unhurt to the sea immediately after capture. Guidance from the Sussex IFCA (Inshore Fishing & Conservation Authority) the IFCA's control fishing from high tide to the six mile limit.**
