Trip No 88 Carp Fishing (2015)


With the weather as it is,  I just can’t get enough of this place and I have a feeling there is a big fish due out of this swim soon.

I am in the same swim as normal to start off with and we will see how it goes.  I am still using 14 mm poloni pop ups over a bed of chopped up Bait-tech Poloni Boilies and a Godman angling mesh bag filled with a new mix of Bait-tech products, that I have made up as a winter bag mix.  I will get round to doing a blog soon about them but I just keep forgetting and as I make the mix up at home, I need to do it there and as I do all my writing on the bank it keep slipping my mind.

Weird sky’s as the wind changes to a NW and the cold front arrives.

Luckily for me today I have an extra two hours as the kid’s both have an after school activities today, otherwise it would be a blank trip out.  Let’s hope the next couple of hours changes this.

Unfortunately, no luck 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
