We got away to the MSW Miramichi last week and managed to get a good bunch of fiddleheads and a couple of nice winter trout to go with them. The fiddleheads seemed to peak a bit earlier this year but there were still lots around to pick although you had to search for them in the lower lying areas. Some of the commercial pickers were still picking in the lower areas as late as last week-end and having good success. Many native New Brunswickers pick up some extra cash over a three week period when the fiddleheads are in bloom. In a" have not" province like ours this extra income comes in mighty handy for those on a fixed income but are able bodied enough to get out and pick a few pounds of these delicious greens. I'm surprised the government hasn't tried to screw this little home grown enterprise up for the folks who need the extra income at this time of year. The following photo shows a bunch of picked fiddleheads and a nice brook trout in the landing net.
