In theory, it is possible that I could help clean fish….if I could handle a filet knife, if I could use my thumb to scrape out the innards…. My thumbs are just not strong…I said IN THEORY!
He said he needed some help…RUN
Gusty winds were blowing his newspapers around and his innards grocery sack ….. so I helped. I held the bag and watched every deliberate move in the cleaning of 5 trout. After the first announcement that this was a mama fish because of all of the eggs, I had to look. On fish number 3 I watched the gutting process…the fish actually rubbed against my wrist..a little red food coloring substance…. I looked in the bag and saw the heads with eyes looking at me. I swallowed a few times and made it through….by fish number 5, I thought if this is the worst of it…in Theory….I could do it.
