Permit Holder Guest Permits
Annual and Winter Permit holders are reminded that up to two Guest Permits per day can now be bought at the same outlets that your Annual or Winter Permit was bought from.
If you want to buy a Guest Permit and are offered or given a Day Ticket instead please ask for it to be replaced with a Guest Permit – this is the first year that they are being made available in this way and some confusion may arise.
The Guest Permit allows your guest(s) to accompany you anywhere on the river covered by your Annual or Winter permit. If your guest is carrying a Day Ticket instead of a Guest Permit their access will be restricted to parts of the non-tidal river between Barcombe Mills and the Anchor Inn. Prices are the same for each so please ensure that you are given the ticket you are expecting.

Winter Coarse Fishing Permits
1st November is the start date for the Society’s winter coarse fishing permit.
The winter permit price for 2012/13 is £46.00 so bear in mind that a winter permit gives you fishing up until 30th April (at Piltdown Pond) and access to most of the river between Goldbridge at Newick and Hamsey near Lewes, including the excellent pike fishing on the tidal river, until 14 March 2013 for the price of less than 5 day tickets – Senior and Under 19 coarse fishing permits are still available at their regular (discounted) annual price.

Another good carp for Tony Wingrove – 22lb 5oz Mirror from Hamsey, 15 July 2012.
Tony writes “[Caught] at 4.30 pm. One hell of a fight in very pacey water, it was the best fish of the session… the water being very high has not affected the feeding of the fish. Bream averaged 4lb and also some very good roach up to 1lb 9oz all fell to hair rigged 8mm pellets and cage feeder (45 grams).”
Thanks again for the photo and information Tony.
