Trip No 44 Carp Fishing (2016)

I has been promising to take my eldest daughter fishing since last year and she has been very patient with me as I have been telling her that it’s way to cold (as I did not want to put her off, by going in bad weather).

Well, we have finally made it.  My swim selection was narrowed down to a swim that fitted a two man bivvy and was big enough to be able to let her do some float fishing.

My half of the swim gave me access to a very nice tree lined margins that I baited up with Bait-Tech new spod mix.

And a couple of handfuls of poloni boilies over the top.


Perfect with the sun beaming down, should warm that area up nicely.

The other rod was flicked further along and both had washed out poloni pop on.


We sat back and enjoyed the view.  We did a spot of float fishing before retiring to the Bivvy to watch some DVD’s for the evening.  It mostly rained and I was feel quite confident that the carp would be feeding.

At around 6 am, I was awaken by a friendly duck pick up my hook bait, THANKS.

And that was the only excitement.

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
