Hake in abundance!


First light...



and heavy cloud cover descends over the Bay...



looking South towards the gaps in Newlyn...



Tom has one eye on the impending shower...



plenty of sardines this morning...



together with hake...



and the reddest of red red gurnard...



all captured on film...



along with red mullet...



the market is busy...



taking turns out of headline ropes for hake nets...



checking the light levels...



some of the Ajax crew after a hard few days at sea where the hake fishing is the heaviest in living memory - seven hours to haul one tier of nets to produce 200 boxes of hake - it would normally take under two hours to haul one tier...



now it's time for the boys to get their hake ashore...



and rush them to the auction...



Dan ponders the results of a long night's sardine fishing...



his Pride of Cornwall one of three boats still landing in the early hours...



along the sea frontit seems Newlyn Green is getting greener!
