2015 Hope’s

My hopes for this year are

1)  That my new syndicate is as it was with the interim one.  Everyone was happy to let everyone get on with their own fishing. Too the point that if you were on one of the two smaller lake’s no one would fish on there, which was good.
I am looking foward to having over 8 miles of river to fish with only a 100 members.  This will be an amazing time.

2) I hoping to still fish on the reservoir, as there is a nice common, I would like time catch one day and a very large pike.

3) I would really like to get my head around barbel fishing, which I believe I have a much better chance now.

I can’t wait to get on my new syndicate which starts on 1st February.  This will give me so many options, I don’t quite nowhere to start.

Keep looking out for updates through out the year.


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
