Trip 6 Perch Fishing – 2019


I have come back down the local lake today after the Perch.  This time, I am armed with two rods and a pot full of prawns, in the hope of bagging a better fish.

I am still learning about perch fishing at this stage, I used to do it many years ago but things have changed so much.  But fishing is all about learning and I am finding it very enjoyable.  Don’t panic, I will never lose the love for carp fishing and I will be out soon after then again, I just fancied a change.

I had a small bit of action but didn’t hook the fish, it got away with the bait.  I gave it another 45 minutes but just couldn’t connect to the fish.  Very frustrating, so time to move on.

My second swim showed no signs of any fish but looked pretty perfect, so I gave it a go for 30 minutes.  With not even a knock, time for the third swim!

This had produced fish in the past and there were little signs of small fry.  So I was hoping for some action and sure enough after about 30 minutes, the center pin rod was away and I was into a lovely perch and it was soon in the net.

With the rain really coming down hard, I put up the brolly and hunkered down for a bit in the hope that there must be another fish out there.

With no more knocks and a break in the rain, I quickly moved to my last swim of the day, which is next to the one I started in but a different angle to the pads and maybe a fish.

With only just over an hour left, I was very hopeful of another perch, but it just did not happen.

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
