and of course there's 'Up and Awa' wi' the Laverock' by Andy Hunter - recorded by him (accompanied by me), Lizzie Higgins and Heather Heywood. It's a fine song about fishing for trout and then cooking them on the campfire. The tune is the 'Jig of Slurs'.

Also John Watt's tongue in cheek 'Kentucky Saturday Night' with its chorus line - 'When the catfish rise, aint no surprise, on Kentucky saturday night'(we frequently tell him that catfish are bottom feeders,BTW).
