Gutting a Fish

If you manage to catch a fish, these are the steps on how you are able to prepare:
Step 1: Using a pocket knife or a stone knife, slit the fish up toward the head and away from your hand.
Step 2: Separate the head by cutting just below the gills.
Step 3: Open the fish and pull the head and bones away in one piece.
Step 4: The best part of the fish is the gills/cheeks. Make sure to cut the gills, hold the gills meat and swoop around it so you can cut it off.
