Furzebray Carp Fishery continues to produce some very big fish despite the colder conditions. Andy White banked the mirror carp known as three scales at 36lb. Chris Connaughton banked fish of 32lb 27lb and 21lb. Graham Kelly banked the huge carp Blackspot at 45lb 8oz (Above) along with other carp of 33lb, 27lb and 21lb. The carp of Furzebray always seem to feed well during stormy conditions.

Big low pressure systems with mild air from the South West combined with wind and rain often bring the big fish the feed as anglers found whilst fishing South Molton Lakes at Furzebray and Hacche Lane.
(Above) Graham Kelly made the most of a cancellation at Furzebray !!! Graham banked one of his target fish from Island Lake The mint common at an all time high of 35lb 12oz.
Lee Rolls has been a long time member of the Hacche Lake syndicate and set a new lake record banking 32lb 14 oz he then went on and broke it again a couple of hours later with another fish of 33lb 8oz.
An exciting new opportunity for North Devon’s carp anglers with the opening of two new day ticket lakes stocked with carp to over 30lb.
There are 17 swims at Hacche over two lakes with booking limiting amount of swims occupied to allow anglers the space and freedom to move if they wish…over 200 fish from 12lb to mid 30’s split between the two lakes..bookings taken on 07814 510580. There is a strict no visitor rule to keep it quiet for the paying angler’s, if anyone wishes to have a look they can ring to arrange a viewing.
The carp known as Blackspot has been tempted from Furzebray at weight of 45lb 12oz. It was caught during the spring at a weight of 39lb 12oz a massive weight increase of 6lb. At this rate this carp and others in the lake could be nudging 50lb next year!
When I started carp fishing back in the early eighties such a water would have been unheard of in North Devon. Waters that contained such huge carp were spoken of in hushed tones and I would suggest that Furzebray now holds fish to almost match those at Redmire Pool in its glory days.
