Trip No 86 Carp Fishing (2015)


I had intended to fish Saturday night.  However, with the weather forecasting rain and both myself and my friend,  not be able to arrive until noon time.  We didn’t fancy getting completely soaked to the skin.  So we both stayed at home and had some fun with our family’s and for me that was a trip to the theatre to see ‘There be Monsters’ and my youngest loved it.

Anyway here we are on a nice calm Monday morning down the lake again, after those carp.  Can’t believe it’s so mild and we are still in November.  If this carries on, not sure if I will get Pike fishing.

I am in the same swim as before and using the same approach as normal.

I was getting a bit worried I had selected the wrong swim again, when a small common of around 12 lb saved the day.

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
