#FishyFriday in Newlyn.


Passing the time of day chin-wagging waiting for the boat to 'take the ground' as the tide drops...


as #FishyFriday's auction gets underway...


with a stack of cracking flats like these big turbot...


megrim sole...


are sold by auctioneer Ian...


carefully checked over by the buyers...


like Falfish's Edwin...


busy buying hake...


or grey mullet...


and Dover soles heading off to Smarts...


along with some top quality monk tails...


and a stack of crab paws...


this year the inshore boats have hardly seen any of these once common summertime fish, the mighty mackerel...


Wings went for the big John Dory...


while Iceberg picked up a few conger...


and the biggest of the monk tails from the Scottish prawn boat, Vision await the auctioneer's attention...


along with a box of red mullet...


there were plenty of megrims as the beamers turn their attention to the deeper waters south of Newlyn...


man on a mission...


a packed Newlyn Cafe...


feeds breakfast to guys like Mr Cripps who have been on the market all night.
