This pool is set with a central island and sunken tree holding carp to 23lb & there are a good head of 4lb to 12lb carp, there are bream to 8lb and Tench to 7lb plus some roach and Rudd to 1lb. There are catfish to 30lb and a mixture of koi ghost and grass carp.
Coarse Pool 3
Is a similar stocking to coarse pool 2 with a slightly bigger head of silver fish, the carp run to 23lb and the bream and tench run to 8lb and with a larger head in size of roach and Rudd that go to 2lb the perch run to 3lb and the crucians run to 3lb. This is very much a featured pool with a good variation in depth.
Carp Free Pool
This lake is a little gem with some cracking specimens beneath its water, the bream and tench run to 8lb and the perch have been landed to 4lb+ the roach and Rudd have grown to and impressive 2lb goldfish run to 6lb a and the koi'a also run to 6lb.
Specimen lake 1
This is one of 3 specimen lakes all have thee own character specimen 1 is ideal for stalking and close in feature fishing. The carp run to 30+ with some cracking fully scaled mirror and linear carp. There is a good chance of a 20lb carp here with a good head also ranging from 13lb to upper teens. This lake also is the pike water with the biggest pushing 25lb. A great predator lake when they're on the feed.
Specimen lake 2
This is the smallest of all 3 specimen lakes with a select amount of larger carp to 38lb. A big hit among the serious carp angler as its known to produce a 30lb+ carp, with a good head of upper 20's backing them up. A challenging lake with great rewards
Specimen lake 3
The biggest of the 3 specimen lakes and with good reason with Catfish to 70lb+ which if hooked you will make use of the lake in giving you a fight to remember. The carp go to 34lb+ in which multiple catches can be a common occurrence if you get them feeding.

Having recently retired I decided to return to coarse fishing. Having tried several over the last couple of years I discovered the Tanyard and since then I havent looked back. As a hobby [not serious] angler I like to fish the no2 carp pond. I have never had a day when I have not succeeded in catching st least 10 or more carp,usually all over 5lb with my personal best so far of a 14lb mirror. The staff are always ready to help if needed and the facilities are excellent. Well done Tanyard.

I have just come back from a 3 day, 2 night fishing trip to Tanyards Fishery and I was impressed at the standards there. I was especially pleased that the toilets were clean and the bailiff was nice and offered advice where occasionally you get Bailiffs who are rude and act like they are doing you a favour. I fished 2 days on Specimen lake 1 and caught nothing but then moved to the carp lake and was much more successful, landing common carp between 9 and 15lb using halibut pellets which were really effective. I was impressed with the price to stay at the fishery only being £12 for 24 hours with 2 rods and would recommend this fishery to anyone who enjoys a bit of quality Carp fishing.
