Bit of a shortlist really, but thinking about it, I can't think of many more that I would add to the list. How about you?

I've caught 3 out of the 4, with the Ferox Trout eluding me, but I'm pretty pleased to have had the chance to fish for proper Wild Carp on a private pool on the Cadbury Bournville estate when I was younger.

Suppose you could probably add Barbel to the list but if so then where do you stop?

I don't know the first thing about Game Fish to be honest, probably why I've only ever caught the one Brown Trout (and lost one).

You’re one brown trout up on me at least
I caught mine from the Worcs Stour so was quite pleased, although I have heard of a few in there. The one I lost jumped out the water and looked a decent size, but the hook came out.

I caught the 3 coarse fish but a long time since I caught a wild carp and Crucian I could be sure was true but I catch Gudgeon regularly.

I agree about Ruffe

I caught a few Ruffe from the Grand Union at Small Heath.
