Welcome to The Carp Society

When the Society was formed in 1981, Carp Angling was very much in its infancy. Over the 35 years since inception, it has developed into a major branch of angling. Our organisation has needed to keep pace with the rapid and ongoing commercialisation of our sport. The primary aim was to develop and promote Carp Angling. Today, the organisation still abides by the founding principles of representing carp angling in the best possible way.

Our fisheries, Horseshoe Lake, Farriers, Langholme Lake and Little Farriers, are amongst the best in the UK and the facilities at our premier water, Horseshoe Lake are pretty much unrivalled.
