Yes very Simon they can come out at over four poundsOn a social media site someone has posted these pics of a fish he caught from the Ribble. Most who replied also showed pics of very similar looking fish.
The general consensus was that these were choach or chub roach hybrids and were common in the river.

I thought they may be Ide but the scale count on the lateral line is too few? I am not disputing their opinions. I think they're a rare-ish fish elsewhere.
Are they that common on the Ribble?
