The Global FlyFisher - The Largest and Best Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
The filets cut off the fish still have skin and ribs on them. Lay the filet flat on the board, skin down. Come in with the knife flat against the board from the tail and cut gently towards the front to free the meat from the skin. Trim off the ribs and floppy belly meat as thinly as you can.
