+1 on Slick's suggestion. Cleaned, smaller fish (brookies...mmmm) can be laid over a green stick with one end stuck in the ground and the other into the head cavity, then angled towards the fire. I'm 99.9% catch and release myself, but that .1% when I'm way up in the Montana backcountry and chowing down on the day's catch simply can't be beat.
Frying pans mean dirty dishes to clean, and dirty dishes mean curious critters, neither of which I care to deal with in the backcountry. Be sure to get all of the bloodline out, and always dispose of your entrails properly, too!
I meant the fish entrails.
Hey Slick- great looking husky!!
“Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost.” -Sigurd Olson
