   First, go out on a small boat in a big lake on a HOT summer day and catch one large Longnose Gar.  Next kill it before it kills you.  Then try to get your buddy to clean it.  If this fails, oh well, clean it yourself.  One large Gar may yeild 8 ounces of flesh.  Using maple or alder, hot smoke fish until done.  Cool and continue with recipe.  Smoked Trout is a great substitute if Gar is not readily available.
