Trip No 144 Carp Fishing (2016)


After a fantastic long weekend away with the family on Dorset.

I am back out after those Carp again.  With it being school holiday’s, I am restricted to nights only until next year.  Which isn’t a bad thing, as I get to spend a bit more time with the family and it’s Christmas – which is great fun.

I believe that I am the only one on here tonight.  I had a quick chat with a day angler on his way home and that was it.

I have gone back to the same area as the last fish I caught – this is my best option I feel.  I am unable to visit in the day time and I will stay up quite late listening out for fish, they appear to only show themselves at night at the moment.

Both rods have small bags with a handful of chopped boilies soaked Catalyst food dip and Natural Pop Ups on.

I stayed up quite late and was awake in the night.  There were a few fish in the area. However none of them graced my net.

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
