How many can it need? How many bones can the humble herring actually need?

I hate fishbones!

I’ve caught some herring in my time, ‘kippered’ them and even made a variant of kipper pate. They taste delicious... but those bloody bones!

I’ve caught even more mackerel, lively fish, darting and diving on your line, then flipping and flopping vigorously as they leave the aquasphere, flapping in the bucket. The mackerel deserves to have lots of bones... but doesn’t and those it has are easy to remove.

With that in mind, can you imagine my breakfast today of unfilleted whole kipper?

    Still salivating.... but those bones, well, they're well worth the effort arent they?

    Yes they are Drew.... but eating them was messy (finger food! - Mrs H left the room!)
