Large river systems are not easy to fish

Large river systems are not easy to fish – fast riffles and unexpectedly deep pools may seem daunting, especially when it’s your first time there. 🤔 At the same time such systems hold ample choice of species in good numbers!
AJ from Deeper marketing team recently fished Dunajec river in Vistula basin for the first time. Expecting to catch trout in small streams he ended up facing this massive river with a tiny ultralight rod – at first, he was overwhelmed. 😳 But it took only four casts until he saw that tiny rod bend and a beautiful spotted rocket got into his landing net. A quick pic and back to the water! From that moment it was ON! 🤘 The trout were actively feeding despite it being almost midday – it was an amazing session!

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
