#FishyFriday in Newlyn


All set to dry out as the tide drops...


there's always work to be done on a boat, above or be,low the waterline...


today's menu is...


the collection of boat's tallies is growing...


the white soles of Dover...


and in the red corner...


the megrim, by a short head...


skinned monk tails are all the rage with the Scottish boys...


while the big man Don goes for prime...


and Roger Nowell Jnr cannot resist chasing those JDs...


not to be outdone by the visiting haggis boys...


the James RH has given the langoustine market a touch of home-caught for the merchants to try - good quality too


big, bad bass courtesy of the Boy Dylan...


keep a good huddle round the boxes...


three's company, big monk from the Orion...


while at the other end of the market the buyers are bidding...


on the port's only MSC certified white fish...


Cornishsih hake...


from that well known boat, the Ajax...


eyes down for the next bid...


there's two sides to every white fish...


the bull nose cod...


the incongruous conger...


and the colourful plaice...


all set for a journey north, another wind farm service cat spends the night in Newlyn...


Millenia bound for the ice works...


signs of fine weather, plenty empty berths...


just a couple of passing yachts...


a length of very old trans-Atlantic cable with the inner copper core revealed...


and still some of the protective tarred outer layer visible...


she's taking shape at the stern...


and the bow...


 the Galilee is looking good!
