Trout & Salmon (UK) - - First Cast -

That’s how many fry we counted in this pic­ture of the con­tents of one cor­morant’s stom­ach. It clearly shows how ef­fec­tively the bird hunts and how de­struc­tive it can be to scarce game and coarse stocks. This is just one bird: gil­lies on Tweed re­port flocks 200-strong. In Eng­land, the An­gling Trust is urg­ing fish­eries to ap­ply for cull li­cences and en­sure that they shoot their al­lot­ted num­ber so the Trust can push for an in­crease in the num­ber is­sued.
