Most people that fish for Carp do it for the sport , very little Carp ends up on the plate . They have a higher value as a sports fish . Big market are the Carp anglers . Biggest problem for fresh water fish are mink and otters . Animal right activists released captive mink from mink farms in the 1970s ? they have done rather well on a diet of fresh water fish  . Otters are native to the UK , until recently they were struggling due to habitat loss . The last few years numbers have grown , population has spreed out along the country's water ways . They like to feast on big lazy pond fed carp . Most Carp waters now have otter proof fences . Bit of topic again 😜 

I catch a lot of large carp and kill them all. They are a pest fish in Australia and in some jurisdictions you can get a huge fine if you return them to the water. They are fun to catch when big though.

My Polish friends eat some of what I catch.

Go on then I will humour you.

Most defiantly we have suckers over here and on these pages, I bet you can guess which catagorie I am relating to! 

 

I'm serious Harry... it is a type of freshwater fish over here...good to eat if you know how to cook it properly...very bony though.

Do you use them for fertilizer in your garden?

No one eats them (carp) over here.....I shoot any mink I see due to the horrible smell of their nesting/feeding caches...what a stench!  They are quick little buggers though.  Carp are fun to catch but so easy with a simple bread or cornball.  Great to see a little kid tie into a large carp!

The carp will be spawning over here soon...do you have suckers over there?

Once came across a mink when walking dog .

Dog took one look and walked on by , good decision I think .

We have something similar but a lot smaller .

Once had a noted hunter at my cottage and a mink was down by the shore.  We all were having drinks and he said he could quickly kill it bare handed...we all said no way.  He then threw a stone from about 35 meters toward the shore...hit the mink which was then wiggling by the water, sprinted down, grabbed it and broke its neck with his hands.  He then held up the corpse with blood pouring from  its head and said, "Told Ya!".

Now that is blind luck...still talk about it to this very day.

The realities of the world...you have been living in a shell for far too long!  You will eat the meat from the store but not acknowledge where it comes from.  You do not condone the killing of a vermin pest yet continue to use insecticides and pesticides, etc. to get rid of the bugs and weeds in your little patch of lawn.

Its the law of nature, your attitude, with that silly comment, shows a mentality and lack of acceptance which is, sadly, quite common amongst numerous citidiots and clueless urbanites.

Even as a fellow Canadian, I have to admit.. that's a weird story.

A current england RU international has his own CBD brand, and no one has batted an eyelid.  Why do people think this will be bad for RL's reputation?

There are lots of claims about CBD and not as much evidence (hence the snake oil accusations), but its not some hippy drug thing and is becoming pretty mainstream.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

The BBC even ran a puff piece about it -

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/46625302

Quote

 

Every week, at every Premiership rugby club, players are using cannabis oil products.

At Saracens, England international George Kruis and his Wales club-mate Dominic Day take cannabis oils, capsules and balms which they say help "put our bodies back together".

In fact, they believe so strongly in the recovery effects of cannabidiol (CBD) they have started their own business selling it.

Becoming very popular in Spain. Several stores opened up recently to sell the product.I do believe they have to be licenced though to sell it.I do know several people though who use it and swear by it to help them with their arthritis .rheumatics etc.

They'll need to be careful with exactly what they say about it in France (and the UK for the time being). Unlike North America, the EU takes unproven claims of medical benefits for any product pretty seriously.

Thought not

CBD products are already on the market in the UK. Check out your local Holland and Barrett.

Wolfpack have certainly caused a stir with this product release. Lots of people losing it over a product (CBD) which is perfectly legal and on sale on lots of places in the UK. I have to say I've tried it for back pain and saw no benefits whatsoever. Think most of what people see is a placebo effect.

Yep. But Holland & Barrett themselves do not make any claims whatsoever about any health benefits of CBD. Not on the internet, not in the shop, not on the packaging. All I'm saying is that the law is different in Canada compared with the EU and as they're not some anonymous online vendor, they'll need to take care over what they say.
