Spearfishing On Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast:

Back when the sun was shining last summer Channel 4 approached us to show Jimmy Doherty. Of Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday night feast around our patch of wild in Dorset, for spearfishing. And share with him our sea faring ways and we were only too delighted to oblige! This episode sees us exploring Old Harry Rocks by kayak and spearfishing for supper.

On Jamie and Jimmys Friday night feast the focus is on sustainably sourced British produce. Subsequently, on this new series Jimmy tasked with a new wild food challenge each week, and this is where we come in.

If you follow our antics on instagram you will know that we regularly kayak and fish along the coastline. At times stopping to cook up our catch on the beach. Furthermore, this was just what team Jimmy wanted a taste of. Except this time we weren’t using handlines or rods we were using spearguns, spearfishing!

The Challenge:

Jimmy had been set the challenge to handcraft his own spear whilst we used with our favourite Rob Allen speargun. Off we set on our trusty kayaks to explore the sea stacks and caves at Old Harry Rocks we know like the back of our hand.  The visibility was against us that day. However after a few attempts it was fellow spearo Lee Janes who had luck on his side and bagged us all a beauty of a seabass for lunch.

Back at Base:

Back at base Jimmy made quick work of filleting the seabass and barbecuing it on the fire. With lashings of homemade tartar. Subsequently, it was by far one of the most satisfying fish finger sandwiches we’ve had! Fancy having a go at your own homemade tartar give our recipe we shared with the good folk at Grow Eat Gather a try with our pickled wild rock samphire?

If this sounds like your kind of adventure then you’ve come to the right place. Furthermore, our team at Fore / Adventure love nothing more than taking to the water kayak fishing. So join one of our kayak fishing adventures or kayak, fish and forage days. Immerse yourself in a spot of the coastlife like Jimmy on this episode of Jamie and Jimmys Friday night feast.
