Weekend in Newlyn


Gannets are a rare sight in Mount's Bay so its always a shame to see one close up like this...



depsite the heavy morning skies it tirned out to be a cracking weekend...



with the fish less than a mile off the shore for the mackerel men...



great to see one of the next generation of fishermen with his hand on the tiller heading in through the gaps...



Scilly bound...



bound in...




a good morning's work fopr the mackerel men...



one man to a boat...



the fish go to the market to be sorted...



and there's a visitor or two from round the corner...



plenty of fish with them...



and they all need sorting...



by hand...



Gary M back in action...




good to see the main engine running on the Jacoba  again...



like many of the Belgian boats the Nova Spero does not work on the Sabbath...



she's been working her 3m beam trawls in the Bristol Channel for Dover Soles...



but has now exhausted her quota and will soon be fishing back east again.
