The Zen Master of fish cleaning

I thought I knew how to clean a fish until I saw this guy from Okinawa. Check out the extra cut in the tail to hold as he just yanks the fillet off. I’m curious to know if I can do this with smaller fish. Most auspicious.

I’ve been alive for roughly 37 years now and have been shooting things for about 30 of them. When I was about 5 years old I had a slingshot. That worked out about as well as you can imagine. I was happily targeting cans when a small bird landed near where I was aiming. Not shooting with particularly rounded rocks proved the end of the bird as the projectile veered tragically off course. These days I have honed my accuracy and changed my weapon. Chad Thompson is a food photographer in San Diego, California.
