Pike Fishing – Part 5 – Old Times


I did my fair share of Pike fishing over the years, when I started out it was the done thing not to carp fish over the Winter months.  But as things change as we all moved over to carp fishing all the time.

Unfortunatly, when I moved down south, I lost my passion for pike fishing and stuck to carp all the time.

All these photos are from Barham pits.  I’ve always pike fished, even in the earler years, out on my bike on the small rivers I used to fish. 

I try every year after the Pike, but just get drawback to the carp (like I did this year), which tuned out to be the right move.

All being well I will give this place more attention this year, fingers crossed. 

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
