25 is too many Salar we both know that but the vast majority of us don't get anywhere near that in a year. Mainly due to work committments etc. The guys who fill the book are selling for profit, they have to be there is no way you like salmon that much.
As for how many I take.
I haven't used a blue tag since 2007 and won't again either. As for the black tags starting in June. I made the 5 we used to get issued do me all season and more often than not i returned unused tags, this year I'll make the 2 do me.
Even if i get the 25 limit I can say for sure I wont be killing them. I'm off the mark since May this year and haven't used a tag yet.
