Fishing on the Humber

These fishermen formed a group along the Humber this weekend.

Contrary to common belief, migratory fish caught in the Humber are edible with no health concerns.

I was talking to a fisherman the other day and apparently the Ministry of Natural Resources is quite active along the Humber. Ministry officials go so far as to lurk in the bushes in camouflage gear waiting to charge people who fish too close to dams or use other illegal methods such as snagging or netting. Personally, it just seems like hard work for little reward, plus I’m not so keen on ending the life of such an amazing creature. There are others who catch and release but to me that’s pointless and cruel.
