Yep, I do.. I enjoy catching the fish and also enjoy eating them however bashing the poor B*st**ds over the head does make me feel a bit funny.. I'd rather that than let them suffocate though.

I've got one I made years ago .A turned piece of hard wood in the usual "priest" shape with the centre bored out and filled with lead and hangs on a cord .

Heavy? I suppose a frozen Cumberland would be your weapon of choice?

Allways carry one, but vey rarely use it ,not yet in Trout Fishing .Sea Fishing
I,ve recently adopted the Japennese way of dispatching a fish that you want
to eat, that is Sticking a filleting knife up into the throat and therefore bleeding the fish.(death is instantanius) better than being bludgeond to death.

im just wanting to show off my preist I received from "preistmaker " on the forum. My preist was engraved with my initials so its quite personal and a work of art .

I always carry a priest wether im catch and release or not . You never know when a fish could get damaged and non returnable, rarely does this happen but its always nesesary to be able to kill the fish with out it suffering .

I will not go into emotive details, but dead is dead. the fish know's no difference.
