Trip No 46 Carp Fishing (2016)


I am here for a few hours today, after the carp & to do a bit of leading around.  The aim is to try and find a couple of nice hidden away spots for the Spring.

Both rod’s are on on the fallen tree line, as this is a patrol route for the Carp and with the wind finally picking up in my direction, I am feeling more confident.

I am sitting back from the rod’s as I don’t wish to spook any fish.

Unfortunately, the swan who had a nest in the reed’s behind me and the favourite feeding spot was in front of me and after the third attempt he managed to pick up my line . I decided that packing up early and looking around the lakes would be more productive.

And sure enough I found some!

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
