All the fish (Lots 1-68) come from the celebrated collection which for many years decorated the famous Flowerpot Inn near Henley.  This Inn was a mecca for those interested in fishing as it was situated just a few yards from a beautiful stretch of the River Thames and contained a very extensive collection of preserved fish trophies.  Those interested, can find a variety of videos on You Tube by searching for The Flowerpot near Henley. Click here for two of the most informative videos featuring the collection
