Evolution Carp Tackle

As you all know, I have become part of the Evolution Carp Tackle brand.  The reason for this is, after looking at the products (and having a play around with them), I got a call from Kevin (from Evolution Carp Tackle) and after a long conversation, I just couldn’t turn down an opportunity like this.

In general, my fishing at the moment is a quick overnight or a few hours in the day time (when the kids are at school).  I am lucky in the fact that I can go out 4 times a week.  This does sound like a lot of fishing (just ask the Mrs!) but as I keep tell her, if you break it down, the day trips are only 4/5 hrs and the nights are just about 12 hrs.  This does add up to a fair few hours each week but you need to treat each trip as one in itself and they are not long.  I need to get quick results and felt their artificial bait range with the combination of Spotted Fin Bait, will increase my catch rate this year.

A few bits & bobs which turned up.

I am particularly fond of the Ronnie Rig, so how could I resisted these beauty’s?  Now that looks just perfect a pre tied cocktail bait ronnie rigs on a Long Shank Turning Point Hooks.

The Maggot Clusters also take my fancy, as there are plenty of combination available.; from the natural range to the standard range and then it’s your choice on rig combinations.


Perfect combination with a wafter or bottom pop up and the cluster tipping of the boilie or as I have done here, chopped the bait in half.

The corn stacks will be another great aid for me this year.  With so many colour combinations to use in the range.  Over a small stick mix bag, it will look perfect.

I have yet to have a play about with the other bits yet but I will keep you informed as I go along.  I can certainly say that if you are after a bit of an edge this winter give them a go.







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
