Trip 13 Carp Fishing- 2019


After the success of the other day, the perch fishing didn’t stand a chance, as you can see.

I just couldn’t resist the temptation.  As I am the only one on the lake it would be silly not to.  Spring is getting ever closer and the crowds will be back soon.  When I say crowds, I mean there will be 6 anglers on 20 ish acres!  It’s nice to be the only one on the lake.

My rods are more or less both on the same spot, 10ft apart but both on the channel entrance and just beyond.  The closest rod is on the Miracle Berry Wafters and the other I have switched over to the Pink Pepper Squid.  Same set up as before 3oz flat Zipp leads, with size 8 Longshank Turning point hooks Ronnie Rig style and no freebies again.

Well with only 45 minutes to go, it’s certainly looking like a blank.  This is a surprise as the conditions are pretty much the same as the other day.

Oh well, 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
