About Fins & Forks

A passionate and competent Chef (of 20 years), Fisherman (of 30 years) & father (or 18 months!) and founder & director of Fins & Forks... Where fishing meets food. I have travelled, worked and fished all over the world and had the pleasure of working with some incredibly talented chefs and cooked for some very well known individuals and families. With all that 2020 threw at us I decided the time was right to pursue my dreams and set up Fins & Forks Ltd where I am proud to offer intimate "Bait to Plate" fishing & cookery experience days aimed at small groups, couples and individuals as well as offering Smoked Sussex Rainbow Trout and all things food. Fins & Forks is based on the historic Sompting Estate in the South Downs National Park and our "Bait to Plate" experience days have been successfully selected to be part of the new National Parks Experience Collection. Tight Lines!

Booking Policy

Unfortunately due to the kitchen environment we cannot accommodate under 12's on our experience days. Where children's tickets are offered they will not be able to use knives or any of the equipment in the kitchen themselves and must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We class a child as someone between the ages of 12 & 16. 

As is sometimes the case weather or conditions can get the better of us and it can become unviable to target certain species. We will do our best to notify you 48hrs in advance should this be looking likely. If your species is unavailable, or BIF1 cannot sail we invite you to join us for our "match the hatch" package (as this is very rarely weather affected) or we can look to do just the cooking element of the day with a reduction in cost. Alternatively we will do our very best to reschedule your booking.
