One of a dwindling band of hardy salt-of-the-earth rural folk who have the secret of the Molecatcher's Word. This is generally shouted, very, very, loudly, into a moles' tunnel via an amplifying trumpet. The stunned and deafened moles may then be harvested and their outer skins turned into hardwearing velvet garments. Molecatching, according to the The Compleat Discworld Atlas, is best done in the month of Spune when the creatures are most active and at their most prolific, especially around the cabbage harvest and underneath peoples' valued lawns.
