One Of These

So I caught one of these... Baby ghostie? Goldfish/carp hybrid? Ornimental? Answers on a postcard please...

And one of these - but yeah, I’m pretty sure I know what this is - and what she will grow up to be... Hopefully we’ll meet again...


  1. top one looks like half orfe half carp.2nd one,definately a barracuda!

    1. I’ve done a bit of research (as my fishing trip ended early - post above), orfe and carp can’t hybridise but carp and goldfish / koi can - so it’s probably one of those...

      Yeah, second one is definitely a fresh-water barra!

  2. Looks like an excellent pike bait to me.

  3. oh,i see.well,i have a few carp/koi/ghostie crosses.all lovely,but nothing so orange in the fins,so def some goldfish in'd think a net manufacturer,at least,would have sponsored this blog by now.hint,hint.
