TEACH A MAN HOW TO FISH….


There is this famous saying that basically says feed a man a fish and you will still his hunger, teach him how to fish an he will never be hungry again.

Well this weekend during one-on-one father-son time I saw this beautifully illustrated when we caught a beautiful flounder.

Another well know saying is that images speak louder than words. So better make this into a “photo story”.

Here we were bait in the water for less than ten minutes: “we are not really catching anything are we now?”

And the seagull is waiting for something to eat as well.

Bites are starting to happen so we need to be alert.

Ok, we miss a few bites as we are also doing other stuff that is great fun, like eating and drinking together in the open air.

Ok it is a bit scary because the thing is still alive.

We decide to take it home and eat it. That is not quite what the seagull expected and disappointed he walks out on us.

But at home the fish is cleaned, and cooked. The old fashioned way: coked in butter and an bit of olive oil.

Hmmmmmmmm this must be the best fish I ever ate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
