Chickens, the gateway livestock.

  Rainbow Trout

10/21 Trout are stocked in local ponds, lakes and streams in the spring and in the fall. After I clean the fish and check for hooks, I feed the left overs (heads and guts) to the chickens. In a few short minutes even the fish's skull is gone.

I recommend this pocket knife or similar. It is small enough to carry clipped to my keychain and useful for gathering mushrooms or cleaning fish.

I liked this youtube video tutorial on cleaning trout  and another on cooking trout.

Of course you can freeze the fish and this gives me an excellent reason to pull out the FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer.  I'm always looking for a reason to make it pay for itself.
