We’ve been happy to welcome many new faces on the bank!

The fishing at Furnace Brook through the Spring and in to early Summer has been little short of exceptional! All species seem to have been in an obliging mood, even when taking into account the somewhat sporadic spawning behavior of the Carp (possibly due to the cold spring temperatures this year) sport has been brisk. We have had many pb’s landed by visiting anglers, there have been plenty of big Carp (by venue standards) banked and along with large collective mixed bags of fish landed by very happy anglers. There has been a pleasing increase in the amount of guests visiting us for a day’s sport along with overnight stays. We have been very happy to welcome many new faces on the bank to experience our ‘old school’ brand of peace, tranquility and some rather fantastic general coarse fishing.

Some highlights from the many notable
catches over the last month…

Matt Beavis and Guy Burger made the journey from East Kent very worthwhile when fishing a rather windswept day session. Matt chose to fish two rods, float and ledger he used 8mm hookable pellets, along with plenty of Roach and Rudd around the 1lb mark, he also bagged a rather pleasing orange Koi of 2lb and his collective bag was well over 20lbs.
Guy fished the method feeder into the margins and was rewarded with a lovely 14lb mirror Carp along with a 7lb common. After switching his attentions to the open water he landed plenty of Bream and Roach and again put together a bag of quality silvers collectively weighing over 20lbs and two very satisfied anglers – well done lads great angling.

John Syddall visited from Bexhill and fished a day session. John set up two rods, he fished one of his rods using the ledger baited up with boilies whilst on the other he chose to fish the feeder using a quivertip set-up and a hair rigged pellet as hookbait. He was soon into some brisk sport catching a lovley Barble of around 4lb, a dozen Carp up-to 10lb, along with Roach of 1lb.4oz. Perhaps besting all of this was a wonderfully conditioned double figured ghost Carp. He found the best technique for the day was the feeder set-up, what a wonderful and varied bag of of fish, well done John great work.

Shaun made the relatively short journey over from Hastings to fish a 24 hour session, he used the new 15mm nutcrunch flavoured boilies to tempt 4 lovely carp with his best fish a 15lb mirror carp, the others all being commons averaging 8lb a piece!

Daniel and Anthony from Bexhill fished a 24 hour session, where they enjoyed hectic action with around 25 Carp landed between them and individual fish to 15lb, all caught on the ledger with monster crab boilies as bait. In fact as mentioned previously despite some frenetic spawning activity plenty of Carp have been landed during month.

Top tip for the month ahead!

The method feeder, combined with a good quality, well riddled modern groundbait and a selection of hookbaits its deadly fish catching technique when cast near to any features or even into to open water areas.
