Guest Comments

I arrived early Friday evening and was greeted by Sandra who made me most welcome and showed me to the accommodation – she explained that Ron ( her husband ) and Mike the fisheries manager where actually on the pond fishing a match.

Ron & Mike introduced themselves to me and took me around the pond and discussed pegs for the following day and I opted for peg 4.

Bright and early Saturday morning I was in my peg and ready for a relaxing days fishing when along came Mike with a few tips and alterations to my set up – I can only say the help was invaluable with my best days fishing of my life. It was my intention to come for the weekend and just relax and catch a few fish – I rang to see if Mike and Ron were about as it was closing in on 9.00 in the evening when I packed in for the night but they both came out and even weighed me in and I was delighted to have 45lb of mirror carp – ghost carp – common carp - bream – tench and the odd little perch – there was also the ones I lost that would have added very nicely to the tally.

Sunday and the weather although warm was not as sunny and with the wind changing I opted for peg 34 and although I needed to get away early after, Mike and Ron were on hand for both and advice and to weigh in another 30lb catch.

On the Saturday weather was scorching and Sandra gave me some factor 50 – they really do think of everything. I opted for the self catering package and the facilities were tip top – Mike & Ron did offer to play me at pool but the fishing was that good I stayed on the pond and this may have been a good decision as I think they are both hustlers.

I had a great time and would certainly recommend this fishery.


For old and young anglers
Hi to all of you old and young anglers – I have just stayed at Tansterne Fishery and what an enjoyable time I have had.
From a smashing cooked breakfast in the morning to a lovely evening meal after a good days fishing.

I am an elderly gentleman (73) and Ron and Mike made themselves available to get my/their gear to the peg of the day – the weather was not brilliant in fact it was quite rough but with fish on the hook every day and lovely accommodation, it was a very good trip.

The accommodation is spotless – Sandra would not have it any other way and she prepared food especially for me as I am diabetic.

The best reference I can give this place is I loved every minute so much so that I will return in June for another week.

If you ask Ron and Mike for their help they will give you the benefit of over 50 years experience - Ron built the pond from scratch and along with Mike they know how to fish every peg.

Give this place a go you will not be disappointed

Return visit
I could not keep away – this is my second stay at Tansterne in just a few weeks – I enjoyed the first visit so much and Ron promised more and bigger fish once the weather improved – so here I am again.

It is raining on my first day and Sunday looks poor but the rest of the week looks great – even so I am catching Ide – carp – tench – bream – perch – roach - it is like a lucky dip – you don’t know what you will get next.

I would advise that on a stay you try different pegs as each gives you a different experience – I have fished 1 – 15 - 31 – 35 – 37 - 38 and 48 – so I have been all over the pond and had fish from every peg. Ron has made bait for me every day and both he and Mike have been to see me several times each day – offering a little bit of advice – they also leave you alone if you are happy doing what you like to do.

I can’t leave Sandra out as she has made me a sandwich for lunch and a hot cooked meal each evening – with this and Ron’s breakfast you don’t go hungry.

This is a ten out of ten experience and who knows how soon I will be back again.
