Slapped in the Face with a Wet Cod! Jul 05

Ah fishing (sigh). That I miss! I cannot complain about have a lack of fresh fish as Japan has loads and loads of it. In fact my super market (conveniently a 5 minute walk from my house) actually has whole red snapper, that looks suspiciously like they came from New Zealand/Coromandel. Will inspect there mouth for previous hook marks next time to check if fish has been in the neighbourhood of home, and maybe taken some local baits!

Have even managed to secure a supply of New Zealand greenlip mussels (okay they are frozen in the half shell, but hey!). Actually I cooked them at BBQ the other day with butter/parley/garlic, very tasty! So all in all for me to bemoan a lack of fresh seafood should result in me being slapped on the face with said product!

But I do miss the going and getting the product. (okay, maybe not so much in the middle of winter), Oyster always taste more fun off the rocks! Fish you have caught yourself tastes better, and then there is whole boat thing. Sunburn, windburn, salt – hmm almost makes them sound pleasant!
Update: My cousin has pointed out I forget being covered and smelling of bait! My memory must be fading.
