Interesting behaviour; the fish would occasionally rise from the depth and hang almost vertically in the water. I thought at first it could be hunting a shoal of small Perch but it would rise up through them without taking any interest (and neither they in it). After a few minutes it would sink back to the depths.
Good size, hard to be sure but it did swim horizontally once or twice and was estimated to be something in the order of two thirds to a meter and perhaps 5-6cm in diameter.
