Catching the humble mackerel the hard way, by hand.






Looks innocuous enough laying on ice in a fish box but a few hours before...


half a dozen hardy handling fishermen...



 ventured out into a squally St Ives Bay...



and with their handlines filled a few boxes of hard-won fish by hand...




then headed back to the safety of St Ives...



last one in...



was Gary on the Bethshan riding the heavy swell off Smeaton's Pier.
