All river sections, Storrington Mill Pond & Brinsbury Pond are now closed until June 16th for the statutory close season.

  12 April 2021 - Night Fishing  
  With the resumption of night fishing at Goose Green from today, we would like to remind those thinking of staying overnight that bivvies and tackle are not allowed to block or restrict paths and access points for other anglers, to this end the following pegs are not suitable for "bivvying up" 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 due to the narrow nature of the paths.

Persons found blocking the paths will be asked to move their equipment.

  4 April 2021 - Found  
  Reel & box of bait found at Goose Green, please get in touch if its yours.  
  2 April 2021 - Match Fishing Resumes

  23 March 2021 - New Chairman  
  Following a Committee meeting held last evening, Paul Hazeldine stepped down from the committee and his role as Chairman as he advised he would be doing earlier this year in the newsletter and new Chairman Paul Holden took up the reigns.

We are sure that along with thanks and best wishes given to Paul by the Committee last night, all of our members would like to thank Paul for all of his hard work and being a guiding light, during what has been a particularly difficult time in the clubs history and for all of his work and dedication to the Society as a Committee member prior to becoming Chairman.

Although Paul has stepped down from the committee, he will still be playing an active role in the Society as our Head Bailiff.

We would therefore like to take this opportunity to wish our new Chairman Paul every success for the future in his new role.

  19 January 2021 - AGM Postponed  

This year’s AGM has been postponed until it is safe to hold it.

  12 January 2021 - Brinsbury Closed  
  Brinsbury Pond closed until further notice.  
  7 January 2021 - All Waters Open  

We are pleased to advise that all Pulborough AS (Excl Brinsbury Pond) waters will reopen on Friday 8 January 2021, subject to the strict regulations below as advised by the Angling Trust;

Please bear in mind these key points:

  • This is a strictly limited resumption of LOCAL fishing and very different to how we have been allowed to operate since May.
  • We are in a National Lockdown and this must be respected. The law requires a ‘reasonable excuse’ to leave your home or penalties will apply.
  • The Government has recognised that fishing can be seen as exercise, which is expressly permitted under the lockdown rules, although outdoor recreation is not.
  • Organised sporting gatherings are prohibited so no match fishing.
  • The exercise is limited to once a day so no overnight fishing whatsoever.
  • To remain within the law you should follow the Government’s guidance, and only fish locally within the district where you live. If you have no local fishing available then you will have to take your daily exercise in other ways.

    Full Government guidance on travel can be found here

We are once again able to enjoy the sport we love at a time when many others cannot and we must ensure that every angler adheres to the rules.

The Angling Trust have worked extremely hard to reach this position and we as anglers have a duty to abide by the strict conditions under which fishing is once again permitted. With infection rates and death tolls rising we must stick to the Government’s rules and ensure that angling remains part of the solution and does not cause problems.

  6 January 2021 - Fixture List  
  2021/2022 season fixture list now available, click on the Fixture List link on the address bar to open and download. All members are welcome to fish club matches  
  5 January 2021 - ALL WATERS CLOSED  
  All PAS waters are closed from midnight on the 5th January 2021 until further notice.  
  23 December 2020 - Matches Cancelled.  
  With the new restrictions the match on Sunday will be cancelled and matches will not be allowed until further notice so I will probably not be able to reschedule the postponed matches. So they will have to be written off for this season. Anyone with trophies to be returned can ring or phone me to arrange dropping off or collection.
