Trip 63 Carp Fishing – 2019


Location – Coombe Lake

Hours Fished – 5hrs

I’m on the Estate Lake today for a few hours. As there was no one about, I took the opportunity to walk around yesterday afternoon, which I prefer to do this, as I’m sure that the lake is very noise sensitive and the carp melt into nowhere if they hear anything out of the ordinary. This does appear that way on my day trips. I’m continuing to bait up 2 kilos a week, which is the best I can manage. I look at it as little and often, and the carp will home in on this area, it may take some weeks and it may only happen once the other anglers pull off as the Winter gets ever closer.

Just bags and pop ups today – two in the weed and one by an overhanging bush. I will sit back, watch the water, read a book and soak up the peace and tranquility of this lake.

Unfortunately it was another blank out on the Estate Lake.

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
