Trip No 19 Carp Fishing (2015)


Evening all, I am out for my normal Sunday night session.  This time I am on the inland sea, it will be my last for a few weeks as I can’t get out on a Sunday due to a few family commitments.

I have picked a different swim this time as I felt much more at home in this one and the swim I was in on my last trip was looking very worn out by angler’s.  That’s never a good thing in my book.

I have cast a single hook bait out by the entrance to this bay and spombed out two small loads.  On my other rod I have found a very smooth silty area in between some very thick silt and put about a kilo of mixed size baits out, we will see what the night brings.

The sun is off for another day.

Unfortunately, I had no joy in the night and it was soon work time again.

Till next time

Richard

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
