Trip No 115 Carp Fishing (2016)


I arrived back down the lake after doing the house husband things.  I had a couple of swims on mind, after my earlier drive round the lake after my day session. I headed to my first choice, which was free and with the light fading fast, this was going to be the spot.

With the rods already clipped up and some bait out.  I flicked two Natural Pop Ups and set about setting up camp in the dark.  Once this was done, I sat for a bit, watching the lake and there were a few fish showing.  There were a couple of beeps early on on the night, I felt very confident, however it was not to be, as the alarm sounded at 0530 and it was that time again.

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
