Trip 64 Carp Fishing- 2017


With my last day trip over for sometime (unless I can convince one of my daughter’s to come with me), as the school holiday’s start soon.  I have been and done my school run bit and I am back down the lake.  With a bit of luck the wind, rain, thunder will have spurned them on and with some luck on my side I will avoid any more Tench.  Its not too much of a problem when I am out for 12 hours or more, it’s the sort day trips I do, is when I don’t need them.

Rods out and waiting for the storm to pass.

The sunshine is breaking though now and with a carp already spotted, I am hopeful as always.

WOW that was a storm and a half with no sleep.

Did manage this beauty.  Well it’s time to pack up, head home and I am sure an early night is coming later tonight.


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
