Instead helping me write a post today, the Prince and the Jester spent the entire day comparison shopping at local fishing stores and planning for an exciting fishing trip they will be going on next weekend. The detailed post about his prawn adventures will have to wait until Chris' work week ends so tonight I will share the recipe for the best sandwich I have ever eaten! I'll call it Princess Prawn BLT.
Lettuce, tomato, turkey bacon, swiss cheese and a mountain of prawns.
To make the prawn dressing, boil the prawns in salted water for 2-3 minutes and then set aside to cool. Combine 1/4 cup mayo, 2 tsp white wine vinegar, 1 tsp honey, cracked pepper, 1/2 tsp chopped dill, 1 tsp chopped capers. Chop the prawns and toss in the dressing.

My last favourite for this post is my favourite place we have been fishing. Little Qualicum River is a fly fishing only, catch and release area. It is a beautiful spot that is not crowded and for a few weeks in August it is packed with great big Springs! The three of us are new to fly fishing and trying to reel in 20lb+ salmon proved to be a challenge and extremely entertaining as the fish dragged us all up and down the river while they jumped all around us. I did not manage to land one of these beauties myself but fought valiantly! This winter I am working on my upper body strength and I vow to get one of those big fellas on the shore this summer. Here's a couple pictures of the boys and their big catches, a quick snap with the camera and they were off again..
