Rare, Wild Goldfish Landed Today
I had another good day of carp fishing today with good numbers of fish, but the fish that made my day was a rare, wild goldfish. I've probably landed only one of these that I can remember, and that was many years ago. At first, I thought I had a small common, but on closer inspection, I knew I had a different fish. This fish had a regular mouth that was in the middle of its head and not underneath like a carp. It also had very small gold scales on its back and shimmering white scales on its belly with a touch of orange near the head. It had a head with no scales, a giveaway that I had a goldfish and not a common carp. The fish was about a foot long but was as wide as a small frying pan. It was gorgeous!
