First fish auction after the Fish Festival

Apologies that the postings have been a bit erratic over the last few days - when your better half is responsible for the Newlyn Fish Festival things get hectic - also, being part of the festival crew also means that, on the day itself, opportunities for getting pics were somewhat restricted - and that included the trawler races which I spent in the wheelhouse of the Sapphire II, thanks to skipper Paul Corin who very kindly allowed me to use it as a comms centre for the race - a collection of the photos form the Fish Festival can be seen here...


all back to normal on the morning after the festival...


with a handful of boats, beam trawlers, netters and trawlers landing...


Monday's market had boxes of witches...


monk tails...


and, all sorts of soles from star boat of the Fish Festival, the Sapphire II...


some beautiful brill...


and line caught bass...


as well as trawl fish the netter, Govenek of Ladram put ashore a big trip of hake...


while another netter had a good shot of ray...


you know where you are - the home of the most unique festival in the country - the West Briton says so!...


Stone Bass, these guys were on the menu at the Porthminster Beach Cafe a couple of weeks ago...


the best, a brace of MSC Certified Cornish hake...


name this fish...


the sun rises behind the Mount...


and over the Jubilee Pool...


with its simple lines...


and clear blue water.
