River Tay salmon fishing season was formally opened last week with last year’s restrictions aimed at conserving stocks meaning every salmon caught before June should be returned and afterwards anglers should limit themselves to one male salmon a day.

There are many pastimes I have never tried; I have no idea whether I would or wouldn’t like a few of them, angling within the number. Now I’m further confused. The idea of going fishing and hoping one would never catch anything, like Terpsic Mims in Terry Pratchett’s Mort, seems less strange to me than hoping to catch something only to throw it back into water.
