Trout Fishing at Home

We have a pond stocked with brook trout on our land. Three of our children went fishing last Saturday and caught two trout. Then they shot and edited their own video of the fish cleaning - which I thought was adorable. Augustus, our son, dug his own worms, baited his hook, caught the fish, and got it off the hook by himself. He has done all of that before, but Saturday was the first time he cleaned a fish all by himself. I was very proud of him. The first fish - the one in the video - was a little "short" after cleaning, but the second one looked like a pro had processed it.Good job Augustus!

Then of course Augustus wanted the fish for supper. I added some butter, garlic, salt, and pepper to the fish, wrapped it in aluminum foil, and threw it on the grill for 20 minutes. He loved it!

Trout for supper - and raised right here!

Just another day together here on the Far Better Farmstead!
