This is on a few of the other message boards. A stuffed pike for sale that was caught in Galway last April. Obviously illegally killed.

I hate these bloody things, it's a shame that some people are still willing to buy them, and create a market for killing pike.

I will try to get IFI to write to all taxidermists warning them that they can be prosecuted for having a dead pike over 50cms in their possession should they accept any pike in for stuffing

Please do John, before this kind of thing is seen as a 'nice little earner' for scum-bags.
