While Sally Barnes’ husband spent time on the choppy Atlantic waters off West Cork making a living as a commercial fisherman, Sally who is originally from Scotland and a ‘blow in’ to the region, raised her family and started smoking fish in a tea chest.As we set to work, cranking up smoking machines and laying out whole glistening fish, Barnes talks passionately about the business and her enthusiasm for the product.She starts off by showing us the best way to get to the spine of the fish, a surprisingly arduous task.From the Beacon, you may be able to spot some not-so-shy mammals frolicking close to shore, but if not then Cork Whale Watch offers a unique boating experience from Reen Pier in nearby Union Hall.Colin Barnes has spent 50 years at sea, first as a commercial fisherman, and in his latter years as a whale guide.
