Mizzly Monday morning in Newlyn.

Busy morning landing for the inshore fleet...

including young Ben who is trying his hand...


at inshore beam trawling instead of chasing crabs...


in the company of  the Spirited Lady III...

the Elisabeth Of Ladram heads in through the gaps to land her trip of mainly Diver soles...


she, with over 20 other beam trawlers, is currently fishing inside the box up the Bristol Channel...


the Hillie Z188 landed her catch on Sunday to the back of a lorry

bound for her home port market in Ostend...


Newlyn, supports the largest fleet of fishing vessels in England but suffers from only being able to slip just one vessel at a time...


on the market the big beam trawler Enterpise made another big landing including a good few scallops...


turbot...


a handful of John Dory...


red mullet...


monk tails...

and plenty of Dovers...


once the sole season is over in a few weeks tome she will go back to chasing megrim soles in the deep water south-west of Newlyn...


looks like the Immy was able to put in a few tows over the weekend...


she, along with the other inshore boats provide the market with a regular supply of the very best in quality fish like these cracking black bream...


red mullet...


monk...

John Dory...


fish from afar came via the Irish MFV Anders Lees landing some quality lemons...


and Dory...



an a large consignment of deep-water hake...


more inshore quality from the Millennia...


why do ling always look as though they've been given a severe beating?..


pristine line caught pollack...

away with the fish on a busy market...


plenty of flats for tomorrow's market...


as a new set of nets are brought in to be put aboard the Annie may...


local building inspectors arrived this morning...


fuel is the biggest issue for the thirsty beam trawl fleet and eats severely into the crew's share, the cost of which is taken 'off the top' as expenses from every trip when they land...


nothing beats the pleasure to be had from over-ending gear in the rain on the quay...


on a misty, mizzly Monday morning and latest beam trawler to join the Waterdance fleet, Elisabeth of Ladram comes in through the gaps.
