This was caught on the River Weaver in Nantwich. A hybrid of some type?
It fought like a chub and was stocky. Weighed a couple of pounds. Obviously has bream genes, but doesn’t seem quite right to be a rudd or roach/bream hybrid. Looks a lot like an ide, but not heard of them being caught here.
Any help appreciated!
Thanks for the info. The golden colour swayed me away from thinking it was a roach/bream and the fin colour didn’t seem right for a rudd/bream. As you say though, I guess each one can differ. Confusing!
