If you put your forefinger in it`s mouth,then your thumb on the back of it`s head and twist upwards it will break it`s neck and die,it may still flap due to it`s nerves.
It is probably easier to use a priest(type of heavy batton),hit hard between the eyes
The cheaper option is to get an old hard wood chair or table leg,cut it down to about 12 inches(30cm) and use that.
Hope this helps,cheers Darren B-) B-)

on a big mackerel maybe - but a good tw*tting on the back of the head works a treat :D
