Bank Holiday Monday on the River
On Saturday was the Mayor’s Junior fishing contest. Bank Holiday Monday saw the senior event with over 30 contestents. It began at 10 am and ended at 3 pm.

The boating season does restrict the number of good pitches. Abingdon does have free moorings.

Upstream from the bridge there are no fixed moorings and boat owners hammer in their own spikes and get very close together. In places they double park.

The best catches during the day were down near the marina where some of the fishermen caught over 18 lbs. This chap near the bridge got about 13 lbs – the best in his stretch of the river.
