I'm a fishing guide in NWT and come from a bloodline of commercial fisherman from Canada's East Coast. While growing up and visiting Newfoundland during the summers...eating cod cheeks, tongues, and the britches was the best part of the fish. I mean if you ask anyone, a good feed of cod tongues is to die for. I live in Southern Ontario and mainly chase trout and lake-run rainbows myself. The number of gutted bows I see on the river banks is disgusting. Some anglers around here harvest these fish for their roe, only to bag em up and catch more fish to do the same. I wish every single angler was offered some exposure to the ideas Josh Niland has put fourth before they were able to purchase a fishing license. I will be sharing these concepts and surely investing in a few of these books, one for myself and several for gifts. What a fantastic concept and incorporation into the website. Well done all around.

Very Cool and Informative

Excellent course on handling a whole fish. I was amazed at what I learned, especially about how much of a fish average folk waste.

Excellent Overview

Very much enjoyed Josh's easy-to-follow, yet quick-paced delivery. I'm only through a few segments, but I've learned a lot. Well done.

"Our entire way of thinking about how we process fish needs to be overhauled, with far more consideration given to the elements of a fish that would traditionally be considered 'waste'. Is this possible? Well, a lot of the most loved dishes in the world have been born from the utilisation of waste. Whether it is a terrine, sausages or the humble bread and butter pudding, all these dishes were born from that thought, 'What are we going to do with all this?' I don't see why fish should be any different."
