New Syndicate Time

With Lockdown restriction eased, I had a lovely walk around my new syndicate, as part of an induction and getting set for the 8am draw for swims.  This is something very helpful and gives you a good understanding of the do’s & don’ts before you accidently do something stupid! and then I was free.

I also took this as an opportunity to take some photography, so I can formularise myself with what I’d seen, in the future. 

There any many sorts of swim; from open swims to small intimate swims.

There are boats available which cover certain swims.  This will be a great help for weedy waters & will help to maintain the stunning look carp. 

The induction was very informative and gave you a little insight on the carp’s behaviour, but didn’t give anything away. 

I’m certainly looking forward to getting the rods out later on today.  And hopefully, at some point soon bagging my first carp. 

Fingers crossed, that i can get a few nights on here before another lockdown.

I really can’t wait to see how stunning this place look as Spring progress. Summer & Autumn will be pretty stunning and I’m sure even the depths Winter it will look amazing and at some point Intime I will give its a nick name as I always do, even though some people will know exactly where I’m taking about, I’m currant thinks of the bird lake as it is absolutely stuffed with them. 

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
