Trip 49 Carp Fishing (2016)

With a very cold wind pushing from the N/W and a couple of frosty mornings, I didn’t fancy my normal Sunday night out.  I felt fishing Monday day would be better, as there was going to be sunshine for most of the morning and this would warm up the margins.


And I found myself in this lovely reeded swim, the spot I really fancied was occupied and the other area had no real signs of Carp.

I am only fishing small Godman Angling mesh bag filled with Bait-Tech spod & Pva micro pellets soaked in Poloni oil  (see spring tip). I don’t wish to over feed the swim and also I need to  be a bit mindful of the Swan.  I have scattered a few broken poloni boilies over the top.  I have also yet to fish this swim and this trip out will give me the opportunity to do a bit of leading around before I go home.


Once the sun had gone, the wind started to pick up, I deicide that a walk around the lakes looking for Carp wound be more beneficial to me than sitting blanking.

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
