“I’m not an avid match angler but I do follow the scene with interest and watch out for the results in Angling Times each week.
“Two things have stood out recently, the first being the increase in attendances at matches on natural waters since lockdown ended.
“Maybe match anglers have outgrown those stock pond commercials and are returning to fishing events that offer a real challenge.
“Okay, some of the catch weights might not be headline-makers but they usually make for close competitions.
“The second thing I discovered was that Jamie Hughes keeps getting through to the Fish O’Mania final each year – this time marks his ninth final in a row.
“I don’t know how he does it, but there’s no denying he’s got a serious talent there and I’ll be cheering him on come the day of the final.”
