Why I Use My Deeper Always

I get asked a lot about why I still use my Deeper once I have mapped the lake.

Firstly, I like to check whether the weed growth has changed, if there has been a bloom, the fish may have decimated it or cleared another area.  You just can never tell and there is certainly no way that a marker with telling you this information.


Secondly, you need to know if the hard areas have silted over or if the carp have been digging away in the silt and make new feeding areas.

As the lake is a living thing, it is changing all the time and evolving over the months and you need to keep on top of as much information as possible.


You find that a lot of anglers just continue to fish the same spots year in year out.  To me, is just crazy, the fish clearly create new areas all the time and these just get overlooked.  Even if I have fished a swim many times, I will always get my Deeper out the bag and check over the swim – looking for these very spots.  It just makes sense and will give you an edge over others.


Hope this helps


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
