Friday, 13 May 2016

Fog-free #FishyFriday




Prawn trawler, inshore trawlers and a beam trawler for this morning's market...


here at Newlyn Harbour...


rarer than hen's teeth, well not quite but the number of bream landed are few and far bertween at the moment...


counting the boxes, all part of the auctioneer's job...


another box of mixed...


cooked with a saffron sauce, classic French fish dish for pollack...


busy busy...


seems the Scottish guys have taken up tailing some of their monk...


just the one dinner plate sized plaice...


along with a handful of JDs...


at the other end of the market, the first hake for the week put in an appearance courtesy...


of the Karen of Ladram...


while another huddle develops around some top quality inshore trawl fish from the Millennia


the view out across the harbour from the market...


as the fish get whisked away...


with most of the boats at sea there are one or two stragglers getting work done, like the Admiral Gordon...


and the Ygraine, just about to set off on her maiden netting voyage from the port after a 22 year absence...


the 'Grey Fella' as she would be known in the Clyde...


key components of a beam trawler's chain mat...


looks like the William is not far off being ready for sea after her huge refit...


sign's of a little invasion of foreigners, one of them there Falmouth boats...


calm enough this morning...


as the Little Pearl stets sail...


age-old tradition of a play on words for the name of a boat...


while £7,150 will buy you a Cornish classic - a 20' Treeve hull - Call Joe on 07801888137 to talk about the boat for sale.
