On Saturday there was the Mayor’s junior fishing competition, and today, on August Bank Holiday Monday, there was the senior competition. The Mayor of Abingdon presents the prizes at both.
The day was overcast with occasional showers. Fishermen were to be seen from near Abingdon Lock to opposite the sailing club on Wilsham Road.
The person with the heaviest catch wins so even little tiddlers get kept. All fish are released after weighing.
