Trip No 84 Carp Fishing (2015)


Today’s trip is another session along the tree lined margin bank.  I have noticed that things are slowing down on the lake and this has been backed up by other angler’s.

I am feeling quite confident that there will start to be more action along this bank, as the fish move out of open water and head for the safety of the tree’s and warmer margin bank.

I have adapted my stick mix for the winter,  which I will get round to posting a blog on that soon.

According to the weather man it’s going to be sunny today.

Not quite there yet, as it’s pouring with rain and my coat is in the car – oh well I will dry out when the sun does arrive.

Well I am truly gutted and more, as I have had my first hook pull for sometime and the power of the fish tells me it was certainly a good one, aargh.

I have moved swim to where I had the 27 lb from the other day and still not happy.  The sun has come out, so at least I will dry out.

Unfortunately, even with a change of swims my luck was not on my side today.

Till next time
Richard

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
