Trip 44 Carp Fishing 2017


After looking after my poorly daughter for the past two days, it was nice to be out in the fresh air.  It did turn into a very rainy evening, not quite what I was expecting.

I had found a lot of fish in this part of the lake and felt this had to be my best option.  I set about finding a couple of areas in the silt and about 4 ft deep, just what I was looking for.  After pluming around for a bit, the job was done.  A few pouch fulls of catalyst boilies over the top and a natural pop up and with a bag filled with pallets, I was all set.

I had a interesting night in between heavy rain showers, I managed to land one fish and lost another.  The main issue, being a snag in between myself and the area I was fishing.  This is one of the features of this lake, it was originally filled in with bits of rubble after the airfield was dug up and then re-dug into lakes.

Misty and a wet pack up this morning, first for a long time and we  certainty need the rain.


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
