Kippers (Late run fish)

I have been asked by Jonathan of Black Mountains Smokery regarding late run fish.

Could you send this picture out to all members suggesting that it is not
 worth killing fish this late in the season as they are full of eggs or milt
and are inedible even when smoked.

I fully endorse what Jon has said about late run fish. This fish contained approx 5000 eggs and should not have been killed. This bad practice is one of the reasons we will lose our sport. “Kill the fish, Kill the sport” Or in this case kill an extra 5000 potential fish.
