Monday sees Newlyn full of fish - something for everyone.



Four beam trawlers, an inshore trawler and a couple of gill netters landed in time for this morning's Monday market...


thereby hangs a tail - but to which fish does this belong?...



not the mighty meaty megrim for sure...



or beloved bass..



and with temperatures outside...



close to freezing this morning there's little melt water in the boxes......



a couple of congruous congers...



and right up Smart's quality street, a couple of big cocks...



some boat's get named after loved ones...



or with a degree of whimsy...



or simply to define or align their prowess symbolically...



there's a rush to buy the morning's black gold...



while these top quality whitefish form the Imogen II go head-to-head...



and keep the buyers busy...



down the quay, Newlyn's biggest crab company Rowse Fishing's Intuition needs to get a new set of gear in the water - those recent gales have seen a fair number of their strings of pots go walkabout on the seabed...



and now that the weather and forecast have moderated for a few days the harbour is empty save for a few boats laid up, undergoing refit or repairs...



generally a morning sky that beckons with a mix of orange and deep blue at the horizon is the portent of a clear and sunny day...



so Tom's view of the Mount...



or out to sea shouldn't give him any cause for concern.
