    Do hybrids reproduce hybrids?

    Just thinking it looks like a not quite right roach/bream hybrid that's then been crossed with a bit of rudd

    Could be Bitterling, hard to tell without seeing their fins properly.

    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    I was thinking that too....but wasn't brave enough to suggest it. The body shape is spot on and they just dont look like hybrids to me.

    Considering what Ray and S-Kippy have said...I did a little bit of investigating and I have changed my mind and agree with both of them....they are almost certainly Bitterling in my reconsidered opinion.

    They just dont look like immature fish to me either.....that's also making me think they're not hybrids.

    Its a Bitterling.

    I'm trying to catch one on a local pond - using proper angling methods - 26 on 12oz hooklength - I've been told to give up on the pinkies, squats and worms - and try punched bread instead. If / When I catch one it'll be on the "How did you get on?" thread - eventually!

    We have about 5-6 ponds with them around here.

    Azurine(?) Rudd or Blue Roach as they were known.
