Oh yes the Thames is without doubt a great bream river. After the roach I'd say they are the next most targeted fish. I don't think 100lb bags are that plausible around here but 20-50lb seems pretty routine. I'd don't do much of it as I prefer to be on the float but my grandad does a fair bit of feeder fishing these days if theres any wind (windy trotting when an old man isn’t fun apparently!) and without specifically targeting bream he often gets 4 or 5 4 to 5 pounders.Anyway. I know I come from East Anglia. But if anyone said to me “You can’t fish the Broads or the Fens, what river do you fish for Bream? My answer would be The Thames,,,,,or The Trent
I remember that match crazy wasn’t it! Can imagine there being vast shoals down there as is a big wide deep bit of river.A guy had 190 lb in a River Fest match at Child Beale nr Reading 2 or 3 years ago. I was watching a bloke about 3 pegs down - he had 100lb and was 4th or 5th !.
