Our 2019 fly fishing season at Arlington Reservoir is now open.

Located in beautiful East Sussex and home to some of the finest trout fishing in the south east, Arlington has a well-deserved reputation for excellent fly fishing from either bank or boat with hard-fighting, superbly conditioned, great tasting trout.

Details of our 2019 fly fishing season are below. You’ll find information about opening times and fishing permit prices for members and day ticket holders. Prices for boat fishing will be available from 1 April. A weekly report about how the Reservoir is fishing, the best spots and the most successful flies is available here.

 If you are interested in becoming a member, you can download an Arlington Trout Fishery 2019 Application Form here. Details of our Rules and Regulations, and Code of Conduct and Safety can be found here.

We wish you a very successful 2019 fishing season!
