Yes    You're right, I did say butt pricking  

'Butt' is the term used in some areas of the country to refer to flounders.

Yesterday, my eldest son Tom spent some time welding and sharpening small harpoon heads to attach to the end of a brooms tail. He did a very good job and as we speak, he'll be wading in the shallows on an estuary on Anglesey attempting to prick flounders. The idea is that you see the flounders on the sea bed and then you harpoon them.
He's promised to come home with pictures and possibly some fish. Its not quite fishing of course but its a method that's been employed for centuries if not longer !

Failure I'm afraid but I'll post a picture of Toms spear.
