Trout killer

This is a picture of a priest made by the Poachers Dad. For the non-fishermen/women out there it is used to crack trout or salmon on the head so as to administer 'the last rights', hence the name.

Di asked what it was for, and immediately threatened me with it if any trouble followed (as if!). She thought it was very nice, until Roger told her that this was the manual model and that the battery ones were a bit dearer!

Di's face colour matched her lipstick!

LOL - I will bring some European batteries to the yUK for Di. They're whiney mother-fuckers so at least she has a reason for going red ;-)

Brigitte Bardot goes demented about the clubbing of seals but who cares about the poor salmon or trout? Just because they are not so pretty.

I suppose the poor girl was too embarrassed to pick it up and use it on Roger's head after that! never mind, I'm willing to bet she gets her own back on you lot before long.

Actually I think it's a "cosh". Y'know the sort of thing that thugs and men of ill repute carried around to mug old ladies with in Victorian times.

Apparently the business end is full of lead shot. To me that is a severe case of "overkill" for a mere fish!

My dear old dad used to carry a length of lead pipe sewn into a nice piece of leather during the last war in case he met a German paratrooper one dark night whilst on his Air Raid Warden patrol.

I don't think it would have been much of a match against a Schmeisser Fully-Automatic Machine Gun!
