filing for a Channel 4 documentary about new recruits to the fishing industry aboard the Govenek of Ladram has come to an end which means hundreds of feet of cable...


dozens of boxes...


flight cases...


and waterproof Pelican cases enough to fill two vans...


inshore and offhshore - the Penlee dream team...


two punts one fisherman, name that face...

removes the spiders from the nets, a painstaking process and easier done in the harbour...


when the spiders that survive can go in a store-bag...
