Following the rescheduled Mega Match This qualifier at Barston Lakes (originally scheduled to take place at The Glebe), please note below the full and final result: Barston Lakes, Solihull, 27th July 2016 Angler's Name Weight (lbs/oz) Peg # / Lake Mark Jones (Tredegar AC) 120-10-00 18 Jon Owen (Colney Tackle) 96-04-00 124 Ben Sharp 93-10-00 6 Andy Kinder (Maver / Marukyu) 81-13-00 10 Charlie Simpson (Miracle Baits) 68-08-00 2 Barry Mason (Guru / Bag 'Em Baits) 63-12-00 24 Jason Farmery 61-06-00 121 Richie Hull (Garbolino) 54-00-00 120 Events leading up to this latest qualifier took an unexpected turn after it was confirmed that The Glebe, who were originally scheduled to host the event, had some issues with a number of the lakes on site meaning the qualifier had to be moved at very short notice. Unfortunately, this meant that a number of anglers dropped out and chose not to fish at Barston instead, which resulted in the numbers being down on what was otherwise another sell out qualifier. That said, the fishing was close although the sport was not as prolific as the day before on the England ladies fundraiser event. Winner on the day and making it through to the 2016 Mega Match This final was Welsh rod, Mark Jones (Tredegar AC).

The death of Jan Porter is a great loss, not only for the world of angling, but for the wider people who knew, befriended and were in contact with him. An incredible ambassador for the sport and the brands he represented, Jan was best known in his early match fishing days as ‘the man in red’, thanks to his all-red tackle and clothing. He then assumed a camou-clad approach to angling, while still sporting the famed long hair and pony-tail look that saw him become one of angling’s most recognisable figures. I remember on one occasion being able to spot him a mile off on one of the country’s biggest motorways, thanks in no small part to his fishing wagon, which sported a full camou vinyl wrap to match his clothing.

Black Viper rods are the most successful line of feeder rods in the Browning range in the history of the company. When they were originally introduced, they displaced the prevailing mostly stiffer rod series and offered unprecedented performance for the angler. Even with less power, long casting distances became almost child's play. No wonder these "venomous snakes" have been essential equipment for countless serious feeder anglers ever since.
