The annual Thames festival was fished over 3 days by 78 anglers on the Thames at Abingdon, Culham and Appleford. The Thames was very clear with little or no flow and there was a brisk breeze on all 3 days, this meant the fishing was hard for most. There was a very tight finish to the festival with 1 point separating the top 3. Winner in the end was Bradley Gibbons with 2 section wins and a third giving him his 2nd win in this festival.
