Ed and Jane Brown started work on the fishery in 1992. A lot of the visitors to Furnace Mill Fishery cannot believe that it has not been around a lot longer than that. Ed spends many hours maintaining the facilities for the anglers but also the local wildlife. He is also a very experienced all-round angler.
The fishery is located in the quite outstanding countryside of the Wyre Forest on the Shropshire/Worcestershire border in the Midlands. The site consists of four pools for the use of both match and pleasure anglers alike. Most of the pegs are accessible to disabled anglers and Ed is usually around to help those who might need assistance.
The onsite amenities include bait for sale, car park, gent's and ladies toilet with handwashing facilities and a 50 seater snack bar which is open at weekends, Bank Holidays and by special request. Breakfasts and other meals can be served before, during and after matches.

Ed and Jane have been able to cater for a variety of corporate days including charity fishing matches for famous sporting personalities, and fishing competitions for both local and international companies.
Furnace Mill Fishery has regularly been featured in the angling press and on various TV programmes including Wet Nets, The Great Rod Race and Total Fishing 2006 with Matt Hayes. In fact Matt Hayes says that Furnace Mill is his favourite commercial fishery!
