Dinner is served! Fresh Heart of palm with roasted Black Piranha. It honestly does not get much better than this and as always - the stuff you catch yourself just taste better!
While we do carry food with us in the jungle, we always eat what we catch if we fish. Nothing as satisfying as watching the fish get well roasted on the fire, a cup of rum and when ready everybody just digs in and enjoy!
I first heard of this book from @knobcreekforge54 and after some research I found that most used copies ranged from $80 to $90 or more. While looking for copies on the inter-library loan site I found that a new edition had just went into circulation. I found this copy on Amazon for $34. I’d highly suggest this to anyone interested in primitive skills, and not just in the northwestern region. The second photo includes a thorn hook I made along with a bone hook that I’m still working on. #primitiveskills#bushcraft#primitivefishing
