Good fishing, peace & tranquillity
Protecting yourself and others
We are planning to welcome visitors back
to Furnace Brook from 1st June.
Before this date we are putting in place a number of measures to ensure the health and safety of visitors and team members working at Furnace Brook including establishing an online booking system and a new administration office adjacent to the car park.
This stunning 5 acre mixed coarse fishery is possibly East Sussex’s best-kept secret.
Offering pristine fish in a tranquil environment, surrounded by abundant wildlife.
Furnace Brook Fishery is a mature, stream fed lake. The ongoing management plan is focused to enhance the diversity & ecosystem of the lake, enriching and creating an environment for the fish to thrive in. This also encourages an increase in the number of insects, amphibians and birds.
So much of the fishing experience is the solitude in nature, and that is what we are striving to improve, even though it’s already a wonderfully rich environment. Each swim is being designed to give anglers space and features to fish to, enhancing the beauty and tranquillity of the lake.
Over the past 35yrs a wide variety of species has been stocked into the fishery including:
Bream, Tench, Perch, Roach, Barbel, Rudd & Crucian Carp
Carp up to 25lbs
This allows a wide variety of methods and for anglers to pit their wits against their preferred target species.
Year round angling sees Barbel and 2lb plus Perch, Roach and Rudd being caught right throughout the winter months. Spring’s warmth starts the catching of 5lb plus Tench and 20lb carp. Summer & Autumn fishing speaks for itself!
