Just caught a piece on BBC1’s Country Tracks prgramme about Salmon poaching. Everyone’s favourite upper-class twit Ben Fogle was talking to a river warden who has describing some of the ‘gruesome’ methods  poachers use – such as gaffing Salmon.

I guess fishing methods for Salmon are only gruesome when they are illegal and cost river owners income from very rich upper-class twats. I’m sure snagging a Salmon by it’s lip with a hook and then dragging it around for a bit then clubbing it round the head causes the fish no distress at all?
