This weekend was Legen… wait for it

So I had a very nice weekend. You know how everyone’s going on all the time about how they relax on the weekend and stuff. Well usually I do my best to do so too but I’ll do things like clean or fly plane so I don’t feel like I did nothing, I feel like I did something. This weekend was like those old camping weekends of yore. Adrienne’s Phil invited me to come up to his uncle Bill’s cottage with his fishing buddies Newfie Jamie, Scott and Steve. I packed my gear up and drove up here.

So I caught my first rainbow trout right off the dock with a sinker and a worm. Pretty awesome idn’t it?

Jamie also taught us the most brilliant trout frying method ever. Once you’ve cleaned the fishes, roll them in flour to absorb any excess slime. Start heating up a buncha butter in the frying pan and then pitch the fish in. Once they start to sizzle a little bit add some water to a little less than half way up the fish. This will keep them nice and moist. Keep a close eye on them and flip once you feel it’s time. On the second side, you may want to cover the pan to keep the top warm and moist. Uncover and eat ’em up!
