West Hythe has been a fishing and sailing destination for over fifty years, boasting a wide and diverse range of conditions to enjoy in both disciplines.

Here at West Hythe we regularly organise fishing competitions and charity events for all-comers. These are always well supported by anglers from across the country. We are especially well-known for our extremely popular eel competitions.

We accommodate all types of client. Whether you are a small club, a fishing syndicate, or wish to hold a corporate day, West Hythe will give you exactly what you seek from your fishing experience, and we welcome you.
