“A poacher who used an illegal speargun to hunt salmon was caught out by his “trophy” snaps on his phone.
Jonathan Davies, 24, used a harpoon gun to capture the fish during “a salmon run” with a poaching gang.
A court heard he then posed for a photo wearing swimming trunks and a snorkel – holding his prize catch in one hand and the speargun in the other.
Davies was caught when police checked his phone to find the trophy picture of him smiling with his catch.

He admitted using a prohibited implement to take salmon and fishing without a licence and was fined £400.”
