Extract from "The Henley Guide" 1957.
Written by A. Edward Hobbs (A.E. Hobbs).
Barbel are plentiful in many parts of the Henley reaches and sometimes afford very fine sport in autumn and winter.
Keen anglers with the necessary experience can meet up with excellent sport and possibly good specimens, as bream up to 81/2 lb and tench to 51/2 lb have been recorded.
Perch are plentiful but their avergae size is not large, although Specimens over 2lb and to a rare three pounder have fallen to visiting anglers.
