Just seen this on ebay, may be of interest, Jan Porter items.

Yes, loads of Shimano stuff, Fred Foster swing tip book amongst a few others.
Some nice reels, dodgy hats and a load of angling literature - some of which would love to read.

An Elf reel seems strangely appropriate at this time of year ?

A couple of books I have my eye on.
You can take it off that one - which I have bid on. ??

If had a study there is a magazine I would try to win to frame and put on my wall - birth year.

What a nice guy he was. We chatted about guitars and lure fishing on twitter which was awesome because when I was a kid he was a huge angling celeb. Legend.

Mel, his wife, is a lovely woman to talk to as well, very genuine person. I've met her on several occasions. I have 1 of Jan Porter's rods and it's a dream to use.

No, Billy Lane float fishing encyclopedia, prices for the book vary wildly, but not many were owned by Jan Porter. Probably a lot of information in it which is still pertinent today.

Ive got that already, good book, near on a bible

though I really fancied that feeder book, £15 was the most I bid with the 4.20 postage, it went for £18 I think

There are still loads of classic books for sale there, may have another go, some have free postage, but she may combine postage.
