Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 10 June 2018

A day in Looe


With the busy fish market in such close proximity to a very public touristy town their is understandably restricted access to the quay and the fish market...


looks like plenty of weed on the inshore ground...


everybody knows Pengellys of Looe...


good to see the Looe harbour staff neatly sorting and stacking their fellow...


 Newlyn Fish Market boxes ready to return them at a moment's notice...


no need to look!, you can tell from the smell that the fishroom bilge is now pumping happily


home of the Kraken maybe,,, 


these days angling charter boats are mostly cats - more deck space...


 and greater comfort, two big plusses when taking...


plenty of weed growing and floating downstream...


looking towards the sea and across to the fish market...


of this historic town which boasts its own Literary Festival with much written about the fishing and smuggling - check out Paul Greenwood's, Once Aboard a Lugger for a great insight into the life of a fisherman in the 60s and 70s!
