Roach begin to shown on the last round of the Oxford Summer League
John Taylor from Rive A4 with a superb net of roach from Medley caught on the Waggler
The 6th and final round of the Oxford Summer league was fished by 7 teams of 6 on the Thames on the top end of Medley, Channel and Folly sections. With cooler conditions the river has fished reasonably well with a few bigger fish and lots of small fish caught. Team wise Drennan Oxford Aqua ran out clear winners and Gary Barclay from the same team winning the individual champion only dropping 3 points over the 6 matches.

2nd Steve Pawson – Rive A4 Black – 15lb 2oz. Steve drew bottom end peg on the channel and had mainly perch on the pole and worm over chop worm feed.
3rd Gary Barclay – Drennan Oxford Aqua – 14lb 4oz. Gary also had mainly chop worm fish on the green bank at Medley.
