I can’t call myself a hunter gatherer, as I don't hunt, but I can call myself a fisher gatherer – with some restrictions.
I bought three fish trap permits this spring. One is for the trap thing I use. The others are for fish nets my brother plans to use. They’re probably more efficient than my trap.
There is something very satisfying even in putting the trap into the lake, not to mention catching something
– fish, I hope. I feel more connected to nature. I feel more in control of myself and my life in catching my own livelihood, so to speak. Even if it’s just two small perch I can fry in butter for lunch.
I'm Piisa and I will be sharing with you my thoughts on this and that, maybe even on whatever.
