Trip No 28 Carp Fishing (2015)


Tonight, I will be mostly fishing the bottom lake and for one reason or another I have not got around to doing so far this season.  I have also picked an area, I have not fished before, as also for some reason – just fancied a change of view may be?

The right hand rod is just of the end of a bush along the margin.

And the left is in open water at the back of a gravel bar,  in some nice smooth silt.  There is a good kilo of boilies and groundbait mix up together with a good squeeze of bait-tech sizzling sausages for a bit of attraction.

Bit surprised to wake up to the alarm clock this morning, oh well it happens.

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
