A couple of hours chasing chub and barbel in some shallow water with James this afternoon. The barbel eluded us but we managed 3 chub including the mutant below...
This one was missing its pelvic fins - and is going on my soon to be compiled mutant fish list.
Others include a barbel with no anal fin, a pike with only one central pectoral fin, a zander with no dorsal fins and a one eyed barbel (no hole where the eye should have been or even dent in the skull).
Do you regularly fish near nuclear power stations??ReplyDelete
Yeah, but the mutant pike and barbel with no anal fin were off The Wye.Delete
I'm going to call the list The Blinky List!Delete
...you haven't caught one of us - yet! ;)ReplyDelete
Raphael didn't mention it then!Delete
You should call it, The Misfits, or The OddballsReplyDelete
The Blinky Misfit Oddballs List. Or has that already been taken?Delete
Redmire has produced a few pelvicless carp but I've never seen in it anything else. You must have a bizarre talent for piscatorial peculiarities.ReplyDelete
