The art of handlining for mackerel in St Ives Bay

A box of shining mackerel aboard the SS225 Provider....
conjoured from the depths by 'Boy' Stuart McClary.....an artist at work!
Meanwhile Barry on the Boy Brax relies on a stripper for the job....
Dan Downing steams the Josephine with her haul of 300kg of mackerel at approaching 20 knots for the harbour sands....
chased down by Traz aboard the Dignity.....
the Josephine is beached and then hauled out of the water by Dan's ever faithful Land Rover so that the boxed fish can be landed.....
under the gaze of some up-and-coming fishermen, handlines at the ready - good to see the next generation watching and learning!
