FinalFishyFriday in August.


Subtle slate greys and warm ochre hues pervade the sea and sky this morning...


as the harbour's regular...


 seal visitor paid a visit waiting expectantly for a feed...


makes you wonder just how many of these guys might be taken by seals along the shore...


or these pollack from places like the Runnelstone Reef near Lands End...


my spots are brighter than yours...


the best of the John Dory hauls seems to have passed...


though there are still plenty of monk tails being put ashore by the beam trawlers...


ling is another fish that shares the boggle-eyed look with pouting...


megrims make good eating, often described as Cornish sole on menus...


these boots were made for auctioning...


scad can be cooked in many of the ways you might treat herring - if you can find them on your local fish counter...


beastly looking fish going for bait...


steady mackerel fishing has kept supplies running smoothly for weeks now - top fish for those BBQs...


there's the smaller scallopers working seven dredges a side...


and theres the largest that work seventeen a side...


as the end of the summer sailing season and finer weather nears and end the average size of passing yachts increases...


Dutch chain from China...


the Twilight III is the latest boat to go up on the slip for a below the waterline makeover...


where the hull is checked over...


corroded anodes that have done their job removed...


and the hull pressure-washed off prior to a new coat of anti-fouling being applied...


like many types of ship, tugs like the CMS Wrestler are beamier vessels these days...


two of the larger scallopers working off Cornwall to make landings this week.
