Welcome to the new-look Notices section. Instead of individual notices that are replaced when we add the next item, we’ll be simply adding them to the noticeboard so they stay visible for longer. Off we go, then.

  • Bodles Angling is having an open day on Sunday 23rd of June at its Southdown store in Cuckfield Road, Burgess Hill, RH15 8RE. It runs from 9.00am until 3.00pm and there’ll be a free BBQ provided by Alex of Carl and Alex fame (ask your kids). There’s loads of other stuff going on too. Should be a good day. You can download the flyer by clicking this link.
  • Can we remind all disabled anglers using Decoy that they must shut and lock the barrier when leaving the car park. Thanks!
  • As of Sunday 9th of June, the track down to Oldmans lake is now open so you can drive down and park nearer the lake
  • Please note that George Cragg will be closed this Friday 14th until 1.00pm for weed and lily clearing
  • Swims at Cemetery Wood have been strimmed and are ready for the glorious 16th of June
  • Please note that peg 14 at Wildings is severely undercut so until it’s fixed, probably best to fish a different swim.
  • As of today, Monday, May 13th, the field down to Oldmans is still CLOSED for the foreseeable future. Please check back here for updates.
  • We’ve set up a classified buy/sell/donate page on Facebook for club members. Here’s the link to Hassocks Angling Classifieds. You’ll need a Facebook account in order to join in.
  • Please be aware that the track at Masons lake that leads to the car park is very rutted and slippery due to the recent rain, so please take care.
  • Please note that we no longer have access to the stretch of the Adur upstream of Wineham bridge. The landowner is selling the land.
  • The condition of the Wildings causeway has worsened and the east side of the lake is no longer accessible across the dam. The known problem of erosion on the exit pipe has been made much worse with the causeway bank undermined and recent soil dropping nearly 8 feet into the lower lake. We’re trying to find a way forward in co-operation with the landowner to resolve the issue.
  • Access to all waters is tricky at the moment due to the heavy rain, so please take care when driving or walking to the water – especially on the rivers.
  • “Magic Twig’ rig – this new carp rig is currently not permitted for use on any Hassocks water until we’ve had a chance to evaluate its safety properly. Please don’t use it – there are plenty of other ways to catch a carp!
  • Wildings Access – we’re afraid the track down to the lake is closed – probably for the rest of the season. The extensive rutting has been repaired on the surface but we’re laying down a mesh membrane to try and prevent this from happening again and this needs time to ‘bed in’. Please park at the top and walk down until further notice. We appreciate your co-operation.
