Rainbow (Trout) Warriors

The boys went fishing a few weekends ago at Lake Fairfax. It gets stocked in the spring and Matthew was fortunate enough to catch his very first rainbow trout.

(Daddy helped a little)

Matthew suggested they bring it home and cook it, so they did. Daddy did all the cleaning and gutting (ewww! so gross) and pan-fried the fish for a pre-dinner appetizer.

This last picture I took just for Aunt Susie (who has a real fondness for cooked fish heads).

Matthew didn’t much care for the fish, but he loved the fish skin. David wanted to eat the mouth. We tried several times to explain that you can’t eat the mouth, but you can eat he cheeks. He didn’t care. He wanted what he wanted and he was mighty annoyed we didn’t give it to him.

How long do you think I can get away with avoiding fish cleaning duty?

    Well, I certainly enjoy the picture, and the fact that I wasn’t there in person.
