Farlows lake is steeped in Carp fishing history as one of the original gravel pits of the Colne Valley. They have some of the UKs finest, dark & scaley specimen Carp.
Their aim is to make Farlows the number 1 day ticket Carp fishery in the UK. With an incredible platform on which to build They are committed to excellence and Anglers who have visited feel they have had a unique angling experience. The Carp are Old and Dark, with character in abundance. They only stock the highest quality English Carp with proven heritage (lineage) and Their management works tirelessly to make sure the anglers get the best out of their fishing.
The Farlows Complex provides year round action for anglers of all persuasions. They have a 25 acre main lake, a 5 acre lake, plus areas of the Colnbrook River & Grand Union Canal.
Farlows really does have something for everyone!
Famous anglers such as Rob Maylin and Steve Briggs honed their Carp Fishing skills on this water and have written extensively about the complex. With an estimated 1200 Carp in 25 acres of water there is always a good chance of catching Carp with the average weight being 17lbs – 22lbs.
There are over thirty five 30lb plus Carp in the lake with the largest resident, ‘the Pretty one’ reaching highs of over 42lbs. In 2013 the lake was stocked with 20 fast growing Leney/Dink strain Carp that weighed up to 22lbs, these fish are already growing nicely and we envisage an approximate weight gain of 5lbs per year.
The original Carp are dark and scaley with some real old characters. Commons and mirrors are plentiful and it is safe to say there are very few day ticket waters offering such a top drawer head of English fish to go for.
