Commercial Carp 2007-09
Furnace lakes in Horsham was another venue that is relatively easy to fish. Carp fisherman sitting around puddles with 30 + 30lb Carp in them with all the kit thinking that they are truly fishing. The fish are not English strains and there are loads of them. However, Furnace lakes is an excellent run venue and can be great fun as the carp are healthy and put up some good fights. I enjoyed my few sessions there and believe it has its place in fishing so I don’t really knock it not like Frant Lakes. At the bottom of the page is a 26lb common carp caught at furnace on the specimen lake on plastic imitation sweetcorn. The fish was in great condition and put up a good fight. Caught at 6am in the freezing cold winter of 2008. I played the fish with no shoes or socks on and couldn’t feel my feet.
