Abingdon - open.

Peg 39
12lb 11oz
Section win
7th overall
48 fished

I've only ever fished Abingdon once before, and that was a devaster, i got battered either side. 
I drew peg 39, which i was told it is a good chop worm peg for perch and there is some proper BIG perch!

Abingdon is a famous for it's big bags of roach, and everybody thought that 20lb of red fins was going to win, but it wasn't the case today, as the river fished really tough! Didn't help with heavy rain and gale force winds!!

I had a cracking 2 hours on chop, and had 3lb 4oz perch. A bit slow in figuring out to catch these roach again!!
