Trip No 96 Carp Fishing 

This weekend is part 2 of taking the kids fishing and its the youngest one’s turn.  The forecast is predicting a lot warmer and no real wind.  It may be a be hard going on the Carp front, as the swim selection is based around the size if the swim and where the Roach & Rudd will be and how easy access it is for the kids.  Both will be here for the day on Friday, before the wife collects the eldest after work.

We set up in the daisy field swim, which is my youngest daughter favourite spot.  The wind was pushing onto this back, it would make things cooler and a good possibility of a Carp or two, as there where a few showing close by.

I found two nice silty channels to fish and spomd out a mix catalyst boilies, pellets.  I put a wafter on one rod and a yellow dumbell pop on the other.  I then set about doing a spot of Rudd fishing with the kids, which they loved.  Between them, they had bucket loads and I certainly needed a rest after an hour of baiting up rods and unhooking fish.

The first night passed with out any action on the Carp front and we set about catching more Roach etc. She was quite happy playing around the swim. However, the day was getting hotter and being bored of catching so many fish, we thought we would go home in the afternoon.  At some point during the morning’s float fishing, I had a take which turned out to be a heavy liner.

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
