Trip No 85 Carp Fishing (2015)


After yesterday’s disaster, there was only one thing to do.  Come back and get revenge – well hopefully.  It’s been sometime since I have lost a big fish and it’s still hurting today.  You have to move on and catch another one as quick as possible.  Then all is forgotten, well sort of, it helps.

I have gone back in the same swim as I am feeling very confident with this area of the lake.

The sun finally arrived, unfortunately, because of the angle of the swim, I don’t get the sunshine,  however the margins do.

Perfect spot for a bait.  By 12.45, I was thinking oops the revenge maybe on me.  I had until 14.00 before I needed to reel in, so I had my fingers crossed.

Well,  unfortunately no joy today.

Until 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
