Trip No 79 Carp Fishing (2015)

As the kid’s are back at school after half term break,  I am back on day trips during the week and a night at the weekend. I feel that currently days are more productive for me.


I am fishing the Gap,  leading into the salutary area of the lake today,  as over pasted walks round the lake there apiers to be a few fish about and for some reason I fancied a change form the main lake today,  we shall just have to see.

Both rod’s have poloni pop ups on as it’s that time of the year when there are plenty of leafs floating around.


Both rod’s have small Godman Angling mesh bag’s on filled with Bait-tech micro pellets and soaked in Krill and Tuna oil,  as this is still working for me at the moment there is no real point in altering my approach to fishing.

Around 1pm I was starting to think I had got this a bit wrong the rain had arrived and the wind had picked up and the swim was looking good,  however no signs of any fish.

And with no joy by 1400, it was toto reel the rod’s in and head for school,  I did have a quick look round in preparation for tomorrow trip,  unfortunately no quloos to where to start,  oh well.

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
