Deep frying fish once in vegetable oil and then discarding the oil is not necessary. When on a fishing trip, using the oil only once means you must tote extra weight into camp which is neither desirable nor necessary.
Simply take along an empty container, the same size as your oil container, to strain the used oil into. After frying up and enjoying your day’s catch, let the oil cool. When thoroughly cool, strain the oil through a coffee filter or a milk filter into the empty container. You can purchase the later from Filter-Clean in boxes of 100. If you have real deep pockets, you can purchase cooking oil filters from a place such as Gander Mountain. After the next night’s fish feast, use a clean filter to filter the oil back into the original container. You can do this several times before using new oil.
