Anyone into fishing? Or maybe just have a garden pond? I only have 3 goldfish in my pond but love fishing.
I don't really mind the sliminess but yeah same feeling for me more or less, always try and eat them more for the principle than the flavourdo you eat the fish you catch? i like everything about fishing except for catching actual fishes. i like sitting on a chair watching the water for hours, see the shadows slowly grow longer, see the sky turn darker. but i don't like it when i catch a fish, they are so slimy and you have to go inside their mouths to take out the hook.
a lot of fishermen also pose with the fish on camera, do you also do this?Fish tend to hurt themselves from spawning more than fishing. I would say that as an angler though. Here's a 6 or 7lb Barbel from the River Severn with a battered tail presumably from spawning.

And a 1lb 14oz Roach with a chunk out of its tail presumably from a predatory bird like a Cormorant or it could have been a Pike.
