Young Ralphie Davis has been smashing it this January! Whilst most have been struggling to find lakes which aren’t frozen solid he has only gone and smashed his PB common.

They don’t come much better looking than this one from Frank! We can’t wait to get out on the bank with him and share his thoughts on bait, rigs and all things carpy..

David Guntrip wasted no time in notching up his first carp of 2019 with this chunky mirror which tipped the scales at just under 23lb. Tempted with a trimmed down Miracle Berry Pop-Up served over a bed of Catalyst and Smokey Jack crumb with a few maggots for good measure!
Who else has managed to get off the mark this year?

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
