Trip No 64 Carp Fishing (2015)


For this trip I have followed the wind,  hoping the carp have to.  The wind has been pushing hard for the last couple of days and with the warm weather we are having,  this I felt was my best option for today.

Despite the open water in front of me, I opted to put both rod’s in the margins,  as I was situated in a corner of the lake.

Both spots where baited with broken poloni boilies to give a the best attraction.  Both rod’s had a Versacast filled with oil, attached to the hooklink with a tiny bag full of micro pellets and soaked in Krill & Tuna Oil.

And I sat back and enjoyed the view. This swim is also perfect for spotting any fish showing,  which was handy as I was going to be doing a night on here in a couple of days time.

With the conditions looking so perfect I was surprised that I didn’t get any fish.

Until 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
