Isn't this fish a native golden shiner? Maybe I'm going crazy but it doesn't look like a carp to me.

I just did, but I wanted to ask here first to verify that I wasn't seeing things haha. That is a pretty big one though and I can see how it can kinda be mistaken for a small carp. You'd think Orvis would catch that though.

It also wasn't caught on a fly rod. FAIL.
