Trip 14 Pike Fishing – 2018


With the weather as it is and only 20 days before the river season ends, I am still on that push for a big pike this year.  It’s been sometime since I had had one, mostly due to not fishing for them.

I came back to the same swim where Ian and I ended up in on my last trip.  I flicked the Deeper out, just to check there were fish about still.  This was certainly the case, I quite like this swim, there are plenty of features and it’s not a long walk.  This is perfect for my short trips in the week.

They are definitely some good signals of fish in this pool.

We shall just have to see if any are nice big pike.

They have eluded me again.

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
