Just finished reading Clapton's auto bio
Apparently he is keen angler-Pike, trout etc etc
And unabashedly admits that he resolved his moral dilemma by making sure that he eats every fish that he catches.
Any views on this.

Cheers

He still won't be eating Pike as it is also in a dicey situation.

The best part is that he'll be killing and eating only what's allowed legally. There's no getting away for him just 'coz he's a celeb.

He's not as silly as Roger Daltry of "The Who". Not only is he a keen angler and owner operator of a fly fishing trout venue, but he also publicly supported PeTA !
Strangely he's been a bit quiet on the PeTA front since people started telling him that no only has this organisation been linked to supporting terrorists but they're also opposed to angling, pet ownership and horse racing which just about lists Mr Daltry's hobbies other than fishing.
Paul McCartney remains a big PeTA fan though.....
