When I started on this journey,
I only knew one thing - I had to do it!
There was a picture in my mind,
Of what the ultimate smoked salmon should look
and taste like.
Declan - The Haven Smokehouse
As a boy he’d
take me walking by mountain,
field and stream, And he’d show me things, not known to kings,
and secrets between him and me,
Like the colours of the pheasant as he rises in the dawn,
And how to fish, And make a wish, beside the holy tree.
Phil Coulter - The Old Man
After many late nights and many mistakes,
I realised it was a taste of my memories,
of a time when simplicity was understanding
And knowledge was watching the salmon,
with the old soul.
