Shocking pictures, but a shoal of Gudgeon, each about 5 inches long, swimming together with Minnows in a small ditch alongside a canal. Slightly blotchy on the flanks, with a broad head (though the barbels not visible at mouth edge). Very much a bottom fish.
Must have caught hundreds and hundreds of these, as a boy!
