A largely fish-free #FishyFriday in Newlyn.


There were some arboreal acrobatics earlier in the week...



as the huge Monterrey pine, planted in 1872 behind where the Newlyn Filmhouse now is, was topped before it toppled...



first sighting of a Great White on display in the latest art gallery to open its doors in Newlyn...



there's always something to catch the eye window shopping...



truck-meister Edwin reverses his Volvo tractor unit and trailer down the Mary Williams pier...



harbour staff are busy making new pier fenders...



as big John heads for the gaps in search of pots...



while the Benediction, which features in the next episode of BBC2's This Fishing Life gets the signwriting treatment from that master of the rigger's brush, Squirrel Signs...



two well known Newlyn punts have been beached at the top of the Canners' slip for repairs...



the hunt for sardines begins, the Vesta was one of the boats featured in episode 2 of This Fishing Life...



deckhands on the Dutch beam trawler Joachem get to grips repairing their beam trawls...



low cloud obscures the distant horizon as the sun casts subtle shades...



over the fleet this Friday morning...



forcing Le Men Dhu to keep her deck lights blazing...



as the sun re-rigs the ex-scalloper for beam trawling...



along with her smaller cousin...



Manx Ranger...



both boats should be back fishing by the weekend...



as will these two from Rowse's crab fleet...



and on the same day the UK leaves Europe for one man, the one with the a huge smile and a face that has featured many times on Through the Gaps, this will be the final #FishyFriday of his working in Newlyn - Roger has probably spent more hours than he cares to remember sat behind a wheel trucking and forklifting for much of his working life and today is the day he can finally forget about landing one of Stevenson's boats, picking up tubs of ice or taking yet another operator's licence of one sort or another and leave that kind of work to the next generation - thanks for all the repartee Roger!
