Golden Reel Qualifier No15 Barston Lakes Saturday 3rd July 2021

Condition for this latest qualifier were good with sunshine, gentle breeze and highs of around 22C.

Winner today with a massive 216-8-0 was Andy Power (Preston). Andy drew peg 51 on the river bank and opted to fish the long pole slapping with banded pellet.
Andy now qualifies for the September Grand Final and is the first angler to qualify for every final so far.

Second on the day was Mark Stainsby who drew peg 49, next door to Andy Power.
Mark caught a couple of carp early on the pellet waggler and then reverted to bomb and pellet fishing the same line which produced most of his carp.
Finishing his match and switching back to pellet waggler, Mark finished the day with an impressive 157-14-0 and a place in the Semi Final.

Third placed Andy Kinder (Maver) drew peg 122 and fished at 60m with method to start with. Thin line was not producing so he switched to his short line again with the method and waffters to land some superb carp to 15lbs to finish the day with 148-8-0 and also clinching a place in the Semi Final.

Fourth to the frame was Charlie Datton from peg 25. Charlie caught on the pole shallow and method feeder to finish the day with 126-0-0
