#FishyFiday in Newlyn


Good seamanship - smaller boats are always advised to put out a leg when grounding against a quayside - just in case the boat falls to lean into the quay as the tide drops away...


a pinch of salt or a ton of ice...


mixed bag of boats in the harbour this morning...


with three beam trawlers,an inshore trawler and a couple of netters filling Friday's fish market...


with plenty of megrim sole...


stacked four boxes high...


along with good shots of monk...


and their alien-like skin...


along with a good selection of ray from the beamers...


line caught pollack stiff as a board...


and some of those big flatfish so beloved of the more expensive restaurants...


these tub gurnards would make ideal fish to cast from...


two of the MSC Certified Cornish hake boats, the Karen of Ladram ...


and the Ajax made big landings...


with a few kilos of monks cheeks...


and the odd blue shark...


prime 5kg hake would make a superb fish for a big family gathering - eaten hot or cold, baked, roasted, steamed, poached or cubed and added to a curry - hake is one of the most versatile fish swimming in the North Atlantic and we have loads!...


looks like a bit of a summer refit underway for the Arkin Castle...


for the moment the Lisa has lost her numbers...


one 8' pram dinghy for sale, give the man a bell...


a 'rule-beater' the Rejoice BH220 up on the slip for under the waterline work...


huge Dutch beam trawler Zuiderzee and the Spirited Lady III laying outside her...


one of the oldest and most successful beam trawlers in the port, the Algrie...


signs of summer, the marina pontoon filled with yachts...


high contrast morning light looking towards the Mount...


time to Rejoice in the fine weather...


when it was a private bus route people used to say they would catch Harvey's or the 'blue' bus to Mousehole...


with the best view of the harbour and Mounts Bay and superb local food the Fishermans Arms is a must for any visit to Newlyn...
