Is this a disturbing scene to you? Fish before and after it became a meal. And it died because some curious first time fisherman associated with the deer family decided to test out her fishing skills at San Pablo Reservoir just outside San Francisco.
Did not know that beginner’s luck was applicable to fishing as well, but I managed to catch three fish, the first catch (a small-ish fish), the biggest catch (which weighed six pounds and which got myself a spot on the wall of the biggest catches at San Pablo), and an even bigger fish which managed to get away. In the picture you see what happened to the six pound fish, sleeping on a bed of carrots, potatoes and onions with pieces of rosemary stuck vertically across its body. Oh dear, this sounds like sacrifice scenes from Apocalypto, but does it taste good! Especially when cooked in a bonfire in the freezing cold and sand blown all over your face on Ocean Beach.
Sometimes you just have to be a little bit brutal to enjoy the finer things in life.
