Trip No 44 Carp Fishing (2015)


I have snook out again for a few hours, school holidays are just around the corner and my day fishing will stop for 6 or 7 week’s.  The weather is much better today and I thought I would give it a go again.

Both rod’s (as normal) have been placed along the margin tree line, with a couple of small balls of ground bait and some broken Poloni boilies over the top.  Both rods also have poloni pop ups.

No buzzer again, as there is no real point.  Once I have a fish from here, I will move swims.  I feel confident, as there is a nice blow across the lake and it’s still overcast and should be until noon time.

Unfortunately, no joy again on the fish front.  But a very pleasant 5 hours was spent, which is what its all about sometimes.

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
