Trip No 81 Carp Fishing (2015)


With the weather so perfect today.  I had no option other than to go fishing (and put the housework on hold).  The next couple of days are looking perfect and I wish I was out for a few days, I will just have to wait until Sunday afternoon.

I have been looking at this area for sometime and felt this was my opportunity I had been waiting for.

It’s a small bay area with plenty of overhanging trees.

The right hand rod was cast under the overhanging tree,  just to the left of the bush.

My left rod was in the corner, flicked in the gap between the two overhanging trees.

As another day session draws to a close and the third blank in a row (with the day trips).  I had better get my thinking hat on, before my weekend night trip out on Sunday.

Till the 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
