Was watching the program about Usan on B.B.C. i player about the end of there netting operation. People here and elsewhere were doing there nut about the fish they were killing. It is a pity that they did not limit themselves when it was low water. What got me thinking about them was that the...
this is a typical situation that we face, the uneducated public opinion led by the rspca bias to stir up hatred against anyone who doesn't hug trees
same if it was seals birds etc , a huge hurdle to overcome
the reactions are so over the top imo

Watching Landward yesterday they were going on about the number of seals on the river Yathan. The estury had thousands of seals and they were going on about how great it was to have so many.
Forget about asking to shoot them. Only destroying our case at present.
[P.S. the spelling of the...
I was in Galway the other week and in the very low water salmon had backed down in numbers from the weir to the weir bridge and below. I was surprised at the number of seals running on high tide up as far as the fish traps. I saw at least 4, one of them eating a fresh salmon it had just...

Pic taken from old Grandholm Bridge.
A pod of 5 Orcas have been seen in Aberdeen bay for the last couple of weeks, lets hope they have an apatite for the vast amount of seals that are in the area and tell their mates there is a party going on.

Just been reading an article in the Sunday paper about seals and fish farming.
The charity "Save our Seals" is trying to get the Scottish Government to go after the fish farmers for allowing the farmers to destroy the sea and the life in it. Quote "A public enquiry is now needed to investigate...
Jockiescott's " Experimenting with Jay " thread has given me a taste for tying again.
There's just something special about the way that the fly has turned out , and I think it's largely due to the quality of the fur in use.;)
I have a load of seal's fur at home , but some of it is really quite...
Tied this one a few weeks ago after I bought some Jay wings.
I'm not sure if I have ever seen Jay on an Irish Shrimp fly before?
I started with some well brushed out Golden Olive Seal's Fur under broad gold tinsel. Burnt orange middle hackle to tone things down a bit and Jay always looks good...
