Trip No 16 Carp Fishing (2016)

After yesterday’s Pike trip, I had a walk and spotted a Carp stick it’s head out, so here I am!


All I have done is have a quick lead about, clipped up and put a nice large pva bag on.


It’s filled with pellets, broken poloni boilies, some Bloodworm liquid and a 14mm poloni pop up.  I flicked them both out, between 30 and 40 yards around where the Carp showed itself.

Unless I see any thing or have a fish, this is where they will stay for the next 4 hour’s.


I have had the odd single bleep and even seen a fish top – just off the tree lined snags to the right off me, unfortunately not accessible.  However, it was only some 5 yards away from my right hand rod, my confidence levels have risen after this.


Very grey and overcast, the wind is picking up.

Even with my confidence levels quite high and seeing a fish.  I notched another blank on the board.

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
