Trip No 96 Carp Fishing (2015)


Today I have moved onto one of the other lakes on the complex.  I have not fished this one for for quite sometime.  There isn’t the head of large carp here like the other lake’s but there are a couple of stunning mirror’s in here (that I love the look of).

This swim gives  me an amazing view of the lake, which is the main reason for me setting up here today.  It will give me some indication of where the fish are, one rod with be a roving stringer rod and the other, flicked in a nice small bay area.

With a few handfuls of chopped up Bait-tech Poloni Boilies.

The odd fish was occasionally topping in the middle section of the lake and by 1245 both rod’s were also in this area, unfortunately so was a bream.  I was thinking “please don’t let this be another blank”,  however it was starting to look like this would be the case as I only an hour left to go.

The bream was the only action on the fish front today.

Until 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
