Paddling North: When Life Gives You Rain and Wind, Learn to Make Fish

We woke to wind and rain so loafed around a bit since we knew the wind was supposed to last much of the day. We then took Julie up on her offer to learn about making fish Tsiigehtchic style.

We went out on Julie’s boat to check nets and learned how to identify coneys, broken backs, and the prized whitefish.

We then got a lesson in cutting fish for both filets and for drying. If my fish hadn’t already been dead, I’d murdered it. Julie said, “I’ve seen much worse, you have some flesh still there.” With a bit more coaching, my second was much better.

And now, we are going to learn to cook fish Tsiigehtchic style. Can’t wait to taste the fish we’ve heard so much about all along this river.
