Trip No23 Carp Fishing (2014) Inland Sea


I am back out on the inland sea, still  after the monster common that lives in here.

I am in the same swim as before, the wind is still pushing across the side and right into this back.

I have a bait in the middle, between the overhanging bushes on a nice sandy patch.

The other bait is just a rods length off these reeds, on 4ft of water which is just on the drop off and right on the edge of a thick weed bed.

This place is hugh.

All that happened in the night was that the duck’s found my spot and then spent the rest of the night and early morning moping up.  At least the spot is clean, however, no fish moved in.

Till next time

About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
