MATCH FISHING: LATEST REPORTS & RESULTS
THE Turner 400 match attracted a big field of 96 anglers in 24 teams of four on the upper Thames between Grafham Lock and Rushey.
This was the first major event of the season on this stretch and no-one was sure how it would fish or whether the big chub or bream would show.
In the end, it proved a struggle for all, except those lucky enough to be drawn at the top end of the Radcot section.
Martin Kirk (Turners) had a good net of roach on the pole and maggot over groundbait for a winning 16lb 7.0oz, five ounces ahead of Howard Kaye (WB Clarke), who had a bag of roach on caster over groundbait.
John Beesley (Drennan Banbury Gunsmiths) was third with roach on maggot over groundbait for 10.4.0.
Teams:1 WB Clarke 85pts, 2 Turners 83, 3 Shakespeare 71.
Eleven anglers contested the North Oxford AS Foster Cup on the Cherwell between Marston Link Road and Wolfson College.
Bob Yeomans (RAF Garbolino) triumphed from the Wolfson College stretch with 6.9.0 of bits on chopped worm.
Jamie Barrett, pegged one down from the cattle drink, had a 2lb tench and a similar sized skimmer on red maggot for 5.14.0 and second place, while Henry Clarke was third with 5.3.0 of roach on bread.
Beehive AC fished their FA Cup final at Frobury Farm in perfect conditions and the fish obliged.
Kevin Jeacock took top spot with 129.2.0 of carp and tench to pole with maggot and pellet.
Bob Hopgood caught 60lb of carp and tench on pole and maggot over groundbait to take runners-up spot, followed by Les Radford with 49.13.0 of carp to pole and maggot. Radford was overall winner of the cup.
