The Carp Society Limited

Formed in 1981, the brainchild of Tim Paisley and Greg Fletcher. The primary aim was to develop and promote Carp Angling which at that time was very much in its infancy.

Carp angling has developed into a major branch of angling over the 35 years since the Society's inception. Our organisation has needed to keep pace with the rapid and ongoing commercialisation of our sport. Today, the organisation still abides by the founding principles of representing carp angling in the best possible way.

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

Events both at Horseshoe and at our annual Winter Show are much acclaimed.

Visit our site Horseshoe Lake Fishery for all the information how to fish our waters.

Also visit our Horseshoe Lake Lodge site where you will find details on hiring the facility for any special celebration.

Regular catch reports and information are posted frequently on our Facebook Page and Miles' Blog


We are perhaps best known for our prestigious annual Winter Show at Sandown Park, Esher.

Dates for 2015 - Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 November and this site is largely dedicated to that event.

Preparations begin around April when Exhibitor packs are available. Online tickets are now on sale and will be posted out in early November. This will be our sixteenth year.

You will find more about us, our purpose and aims within these pages.

Thank you for visiting.
