It is a Striped Shiner:
TWRA - Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - Striped Shiner
They do look similar but the shiner is a lot, well, shinier. And has larger scales. And higher body. I wish I took a pic of the chub so we would have a point of reference, but it was only a few inches long.

It is the 4/5 wt featherlight, 6'6". It is my short warmwater creakin' rod, and I love it! I would suggest it to anyone. I can't wait to get in to some bass and suckers on it to see it really bend.

Nice. I just picked up one of the 7' models from Wal-Mart the other day for $21. All this talk about them I had to finally add one to the arsenal.

Yes while technically it is a shiner, and technically there is a fish called a creek chub, they are all creek chub to me Just like bream

and what did you think of its action?

i just picked up the 6'6" this winter

ive been casting it this spring but yet to catch a thing on it

i love the feel of it casting, the rod feels like it has the backbone of my 3 wt graphite

i plan on breaking it in this weekend on some DA trouts

It's a sweet casting rod! And at $21 it's a real steal no doubt. I was really concerned about the hype factor but there's no hype about this rod. It's really that good of a rod. No reason anyone can't get into fly fishing due to it being "expensive" when this rod is on the market
