I got a text message last night. Whether I would like to come fishing today? My plan had been to go out and see whether the raspberries were ripe, but I could change my plan. So yes, count me in!
|Puss was interested, but only gave it a lick|
It was fantastic; sun, hardly any wind, good company. The fish thought so too, because they stayed away in droves! According to one of my friends, if you catch one mackerel, there are sure to be many to follow. Not today though. We did get some fish in the end though, so we didn't come away empty-handed.
|The gulls however, gobbled up the heads and such whole!|
After the fishing part was done, I needed to gut and filet the critters. Last year I did that and in the end over half of good meat went in the bin. So, this year I got a lesson in how to gut and filet a fish. Then we fried some of them and yes, we ate them as well. Yummy!!
I came away from today with several more fish, two bags of redcurrants and a load of rhubarb. Now, about those raspberries...
