Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 19 August 2016

Tiz #FishyFriday and a gale of wind is one the way - two in 48 hours!


More scallop dredges than you can count on the Albion, one of the Uk's biggest scallopers..


dwarfing even one of the ports regular beamers...


a busy #FishyFriday market with the weather forcing some boats in...


some are spotted...


and some are mottled...


some, like line caught bass, just shiny...


first signs of end of summer squid...


800Hp and three John Dory...


240Hp and 6 boxes - it all depends where you fish...


keen buyers this morning...


with some of the best quality but not quantity fish reserved for local consumption...


nice to see the boat take off the poisonous spines on these greater weavers...


look what the wind blew in...


local workwear specialists, Exhibit1 came to the rescue and provided another set of coveralls after some thieving person took the last set...ps, if anyone sees a well-faded pair of not-so-white Dunlop welly boots they went missing too!...


all set for another delivery to the Scillys...


a small Viking invasion...


landing scallops from the Marina Emiel...


several generations and iterations of wooden fishing boats...


looks good in pink...


taking on tubs for tonight's sardine hunt...


the Chickadee in towing mode...


the Ivan Ellen was called out early this morning to tow in the Crystal Sea with one of her nets in the prop...


but luckily the net dropped away and she made it back to port under her own steam - just as well as the tow would have arrived at Newlyn when the tide was too low and both boats would have had to wait outside the harbour for half the day!


which meant it was all smiles for the volunteer crew...


and coxwain Patch...


the new RB on her launch pad...


these guys are always smiling when they work, as ever, happy days mending gear...


especially when tons more net is delivered!
