    Cookery books tell fibs!

    Sometimes they ask stock photographers to make the dish, take a photograph, submit it to be chosen and then once they pick one, use it in their cookbooks. Maybe the stock photographer didn't do it right in the first place? Yours looks tastier

    Lol the ones my Dad caught fortunately looked nothing like these. The ones I had have a lot of small bones in them that you end up eating anyways. I wonder what those alligator gar fish taste like, don't think you get them down under lol
