One in the eye for the salmon killers

Interesting report for you non Scots,
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4310021.stm
Most of the scottish rivers have a C&R policy, the Dee suggests everything goes back, but I have seen fish being killed for trophies.
The Spey, Tweed suggest as a minimum that the 1st 3rd etc is returned again I have seen the one for the pot boys killing the first so they do not have to go home empty handed.

The Esks took the step of going for a compulsery C&R and I was aware it was very unpopular.
