Welcome to Tansterne Fishing
Tansterne Fishery is in the hamlet of Tansterne in
East Yorkshire situated approximately 2.5 miles (4.0 km) north east
of Sproatley and 1 mile (1.6 km) south west of Aldbrough.
Our Fishery is a float only venue and we have a number of pegs
available for less abled anglers with the facility to
park within 20 yards of the fishing pegs.
Originally Tansterne Fishery was a complex of three ponds, Main
pond, Car Park pond and Canal pond. The Car Park pond and Main pond
have since been joined together to form a larger fishing pond.
The Main pond is the ideal venue for waggler fishing.
The Canal pond is fished from one side only and this is perfect for
The ponds have a total of 48 pegs and we have free car parking and
two porta loos for your use.
The fishery is open all year and fishing is available from dawn
Keep nets and landing nets are supplied at every peg.
Tansterne Fishing Ponds are also available for match bookings and
charity events – with special rates for large bookings. Please
contact us for more information.

July 2017 update
I will be looking to post regular updates on the pond – how it is
fishing – what is going on etc
Firstly to quell some rumours – we are not closed – we did close for
2 days when news broke of fish disease at other ponds and oxygen
depravation – we did this to assess and protect the fish and we will
always put the health of the fish first
Just to show the status of how the pond is fishing, an open match on
Sunday the 23rd July produce an average catch of 117 pound per
There are open matches every Saturday and Sunday and as long as you
fish 5 and qualify by winning or winning be default, you get to fish
the grand final on August Bank Holiday Monday when the prize fund
will exceed £500 - if you want to fish these matches just turn up
before 8.30 for the draw and matches are 9.30 -3.30
Sunday the 30th sees the pond fully booked out for a memorial match
for Pete Barker
Already in the pipeline is a Winter Saturday & Sunday qualifier as
well as a new Sunday League with 2 divisions – watch out for updates
but we think these will be 8.00 draws and 9.00 to 2.30 5 ½ hour
Carp anglers, we have carp up to 30lb and common carp up to 18lb -
although please remember this is a float only venue and may not be
suitable for those of you who like to fish using buzzers / bait
alarms and ledgers for the big fish.
For the coarse fisherman we have Barbel, Chub, Tench, Ide, Roach,
Rudd, Bream, Crucian Carp, Perch and thousands of ghost carp etc.
Do you want to learn to fish - do you want your child / grandchild
taught how to fish?
