My brother and his fish
My brother loves fishing and usually ends up with a few fish to clean at the water’s edge or at home. He always clean the fish on his home-made wooden bread board or wooden plank, with nailed upside down bottle tops.
The rough surface of the bottle tops offer enough “hold” to keep the fish from sliding off it, making the job of cleaning fish so much easier. He then places the cleaned fish in a plastic bag inside a cooler box to keep it fresh.
He usually goes fishing during the months with a letter “R” inside the month’s name – January, February, March, April, September, October, November, December, as he reckons the other months are not such good fishing months!
If you want to live off the land and living frugally, learn the skill of catching fish, either at the edge of a stream or on the beach.
Fish is one of the best proteins to have in your diet, and reasonably cheap if you catch it yourself.
