A rising river Thames made the conditions very interesting for the anglers competing in the latest Oxford winter league round.

The 2nd round of the Angling Trust Oxford winter league was fished by 6 teams of 8 on the Thames at Medley and Folly. After all of the rain in the past 2 weeks the Thames was coloured and rising and as expected it was dominated by bream but still fished very well with double figures winning each section.
1st Kevin Holmes – Rive A4 – 50lb 5oz. Kevin drew 1 above the Perch Pub on Medley and had 15 bream on the pole feeder and worm over groundbait.
2nd Myles Andrews – Maidenhead – 34lb 9oz. Myles drew on the top straight at Medley and also had bream on the pole feeder and worm.
3rd Colin Wainwright – Maidenhead – 25lb 4oz. Colin drew 2 out of the Poplars on Medley and had bream on the feeder and worm.
4th Jon Smith – Maidenhead – 21lb 5oz
