Trip No 70 Carp Fishing (2015)


With the nights drawing in nicely, it appears that its that time of the year when I just about arrive at dusk and have to set up in the last light of the day.  This is also where, if you have done your homework well in the Summer, you should be able to slip into a swim, check your notes and be happy that you are fishing a good area.

Tonight is the first of many where I will have to set up on the dark and pack up in the darkness of the morning.

If you are confident with your information you have logged down,  you can even spomb out some bait but not too much.

So far this trip, the bream are still very active – unfortunately, as it can be hard work getting up through the night when Jack Frost had been about.

There will be a lack of photos on sessions like this one, so I may use the odd old one which is Wintry.

Well, the night passed with no carp and yet more bream.  I did hear some fish topping which was very promising.

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
