Trip No 68 Carp Fishing (2015)


Today, I fancied fishing in one of the day snag swims.  The wind has not settled down, so the conditions are still very favourable, the wind is still from the south and very warm.  Unfortunately, it will swing round over the next couple of days, this is a pain, as I have been let out for a 48.  This is very nice indeed and thanks to the family for that.  I will just have to make the most of it.  Any luck, it may be quiet, as all the angler’s who have been out may have used up their time, we will see.

I do love this swim, despite only having bream from here,  it just screams carp.

I have just dropped the baits down with a Versacast, a tiny bag and a good hand full of very crushed up boilies.

Unfortunately, it was not to be today.

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
