AS Eastbourne Pier reopens today, there is the chance to go fishing.

There are 23 spaces available for each day to fish off the pier.

This used to be massively popular and surely will be again.

It operates on a first come first served basis.

If you a member for the pier you can fish from 9am till 5pm and if you are a non member you will not be allowed on to fish until 10am-5pm.

A spokesperson said: “We are massively excited for the reopening of Eastbourne pier.

“The fishing will be back and we can’t wait to see what sort of different species will come up as it hasn’t been fished for the last seven months.”
