Members of the S&TC UK and/or Angling Trust may apply to join the Cinder Hill Trout Syndicate which is run on a non-profit basis for the benefit of Members. 


















The Syndicate fisheries are situated near Horsted Keynes in West Sussex, comprising two venues, each having three lakes, in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Ashdown Forest, offering members some of the best value fly fishing in the area.  All the waters are stream fed and subject to weather conditions, regularly stocked with quality, hard fighting, rainbow trout of various sizes (minimum 1.5 lb.).


The waters are artificial fly only and the fish can be caught on a wide variety of fly fishing techniques to suit all angling tastes.  They respond freely to dry fly tactics during the warmer months of the year.




Syndicate membership is available to all Salmon & Trout Conservation UK or Angling Trust members, regardless of domicile, and entitles them to 25 visits per season, with a catch limit of four fish per visit, the season being from the beginning of March through to the end of November each year.



To minimise costs, members are encouraged to assist in fishery maintenance work parties which are arranged from time to time during the year.  Those who participate receive an additional visit for every session attended.










Membership of the Syndicate is a real bargain; currently just 280 for the season.

For details or to join, contact Robert Nathan on 01892 770903 or by email at




For the last several years the Branch has taken two Memberships at Arlington reservoir. These are available to be booked and used by all Sussex Branch Members.  They have been regularly used by some members. but we would like to see more of our members taking advantage of this facility.  If you would like to fish at Arlington using one of the Branch Memberships simply ring Mike Richardson to book your place.  It is obviously better to do this in advance of the day on which you wish to attend.  Our Membership entitles you to a generous discount on your day ticket as well as on boat hire. To register your interest and for more detailed information, please contact either Mike Richardson at tel: 07986 658465 or e-mail: or Rod Yuill tel: 07972801914 or e-mail:
