Harry Potter engaging in Flying Seahorse Fishing by the edge of the Black Lake

Flying Seahorse Fishing was an activity in which a witch or wizard could use the Seize and Pull Charm to fish for Flying Seahorses.[1] This activity was popular at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1990s, most particularly in spring of 1994.[1]

This was more than just recreational, however; they were a necessary ingredient in the Girding Potion, and Professor Severus Snape requested that each member of the class bring in three flying seahorses. Consequently, flying seahorse fishing was essential as homework.
