The fifth round of the Oxford Summer League was fished by 7 teams of 6 on the Thames at Sandford and Appleford reach.
After recent matches where the roach have shown in vast numbers, they proved hard to catch, especially on the Appleford reach where a lot of anglers struggled to put together 5lb. But the match results from round five have set up a close finish for the league which finishes next week.
1st: Stuart Keable (Sensas A4) – 20lb 14oz. Stuart Drew at the bottom end of Appleford and made no mistake having landing early bream on the feeder and then catching roach on the waggler.
2nd: Tony Hobbs (Drennan Oxford Yellow) – 15lb 2oz. Tony drew on the beach near the bottom end at Sandford and caught roach and perch on the pole fishing maggot over groundbait.
3rd: Steve Townsend (Drennan Oxford Yellow) – 13lb 5oz. Steve drew first peg at Littlemore and caught roach, perch and bleak on the pole fishing maggot over groundbait.
4th: Dick Ashby (ISIS) – 13lb 5oz. Dick also drew at Littlemore and caught roach on the waggler using caster and hemp.
5th: Steve Pawson (Sensas A4) – 13lb.
