What a fantastic photo Steve.

What a fantastic photo Steve. I dont really know my roach and rudd well enough but they do seem to be very roach like- afraid I just dont know it and its close relatives well enough to agree at present. Beautiful shot.

Thanks Cathal, the fish came

Thanks Cathal, the fish came to the surface to investigate the floating plant and I was just in the right place to avoid a lot of reflected light. Not that sure of ID myself, I'm hoping for someone with expertise in freshwater fish to help.
