OXFORD WINTER LEAGUE PRACTICE
River Thames, Donnington to Sandford (32 pegs) A lack of flow and clear water led to the fish shoaling up, but Charlie Somerton wasn’t complaining as he banked a winning 17-8-0. From the end peg at Donnington he took an early skimmer on the feeder before getting his head down on caster over groundbait on the pole at 11m for lots of roach. Richard Rosinski took an all-redfin haul on the pole for 14-11-0. Result: 1 C Somerton, Sensas A4, 17-8-0; 2 R Rosinski, Sensas A4, 14-11-0; 3 I Young, Drennan Oxford, 13-9-0; 4 M Page, ODAA, 12-2-0; 5 A Campbell, Littlemore, 11-12-0.
