Trip 12 –  Carp Fishing – 2017


With the weather conditions as they are at the moment and armed with the knowledge of the location of some Carp, I headed back down the lake.  Unfortunately for me and lucky for him, there was an angler in the spot I was going for.

So, I headed on around the lake to another likely area/ spot.  I needed to have another play with my new Baiting pole , it was just perfect.  Within the hour, I had banked my first fish from the lake, don’t get excited it was only a Tench and sorry to say that, but  I have had way too many of them in the past, probably 1000’s.

That’s was the only action for me today and when I got home, I found a sign that spring may be getting closer.

Let’s hope so.

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
