The Thames at Donnington showing some serious form.
Memorial match sees over 450lb of silvers caught with winner nudging 50lb.
A recent memorial match on the river Thames saw the waterway on top form, with 11 anglers smashing through the 20lb mark as the silver fish fed hard.
Held in memory of the late Jim Foster, former chairman of Marston Angling Club that hosted the competition, 38 anglers made it to the bank to fish the Donnington stretch of the river in Oxford – and they weren’t disappointed with the sport on offer.
Over 450lb of fish was caught in total, with the wining angler, John Jones, amassing an impressive 46lb 13oz on the feeder from peg 18 after finding the bream.
Not far behind was second placed Graham Bradshaw who brought 45lb 1oz to the scales after also fishing the feeder with worm.
As well as some superb fishing the match also managed to raise £252 for a charity chosen by Jim’s widow.
