Trip 40 Carp Fishing 2022


With a few hours spare after gardening today, it had been some time since I thought I would take a drive and look at the School Lake. It’s Monday and generally, the lake is empty, so I put the gear on the car. When I arrived to my surprise, there were 4 cars in the car park, I decided to take a lap of the lake. The day was heating up and the carp were on the top in various areas. I still had yet to sort my floater kit out, which is a bit bad considering the summer we have had.

Here will do

Here will do to start with. There were two-night anglers up by the island and two-day anglers near the car park. This gave me the middle part of the lake, which is an area I quite like and it was a good place to start. It was 12 o’clock by the time the rods were all set up, I’m not sure if I will sit it out here or move along, if someone else heads home.

Hot hot

It’s going to be a hot one, so I’ve pitched up where there is a bit of shade, we will just have to see how it goes. To be honest, it’s not going to be an easy one, I have to be home just after 3pm which doesn’t give me a great deal of time to play with.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be today, but it was nice to see the lake again

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
