Last week the fishing season opened on a lake near our house
and so we headed off for an evenings fishing with many others from Nattavaara.
It was a great evening for me as I caught my first fish……a large Perch!
This Common Sandpiper was not so happy with us as I think it had a nest or young close by
I gutted the fish and removed the head and bones. I used Birch to to hold the fish open and lashed in place with roots from Lingon and Blueberry
I cooked the fish for about 10 minutes over the fire
Here is the cooked fish
and here are the children enjoying it
