Fish with a notion (4)


I believe the answer is:


'notion' is the definition.
(both can mean a thought)

'fish with a' is the wordplay.
'fish' becomes 'ide' (type of fish).
'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.

(Other definitions for idea that I've seen before include "Aim" , "Suggestion" , "Flash of inspiration?" , "A suspicion of" , "Sudden inspiration?" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Telegraph.
