This is pre-bookable professional fly-fishing.
Adhurst Wild Flyfishing Syndicate fish 3/4 mile of the River Rother running through Adhurst Estate.
The ethos of the Syndicate is to provide wild, native trout fishing, on a strict catch-and-release basis, to a small group of anglers who value truly wild fishing in an unspoilt rural environment. The emphasis is on conservation and enhancement of this valued wild trout fishing habitat, adding value to the river and its environs through considered stewardship.
The river is divided into two beats from 1st April until 30th September. AWFS consists of 4 annual members only, in addition to the Committee – with time reserved for yurt guests on an informal but pre-booked day-rate basis.
Fishing at Adhurst is best suited for experienced anglers. But we do offer the services of a ghillie who can take yurt guests a few miles away to trout lakes where beginners can learn the gentle art. The benefit of this is you can cook what you catch whereas at Adhurst you have to put all the fish back unharmed. This is because we are home to a rare habitat and have a conservation program for some rare strains of our native trout.
Fishing is catch-and-release, by fly only, fished upstream, with dry flies and nymphs permitted, maximum size 10 standard barbless hook. Lures are not permitted.
