    Definitely a Ruffe - the record being 5 ounces and 4 drams and has stood since 1980 with a fish from Cumbria.

    Down this way they were called "tommy ruffe" and once upon a time the Thames was full of them around Kingston and Hampton Court . . . . .

    They are greedy little perishers and more often than not would swallow the hook so needed a lot of care when unhooking . . . . .

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    The Ruffe is one of my favourite fishes. I like to see Gudgeon too always think it's a good sign to catch a diverse selection.

    Funny fish, get them on the canal round here where they have decent numbers, often they just don't fight and you think it's dead, instead they can puff up the gills much like Bullheads and Small Bass do
