Flying fish Säyne is my Unicorn of the River


This is a river fishing trip to trout river but it turns out that ide fish is the name of the game.

Fly fishing for ide is fun and you see flying fish when I try to handle the very jumpy ide fish.



Usually ide is not eaten, but many times in Kuhmo I’ve heard people mention how delicious ide is when smoked. So we decided to take one for dinner. And it was really nice as smoked fish.

The only problem is that ide has a lot of bones. And in a very irregular order… at least compared for salmonoids.

But interesting and delicious test none the less.
