Default The fisherman and his catch-of-the-day

G'day all

C-19 lockdown relaxed, so I enjoyed a Sunday afternoon walk along the breakwall and came across this fisherman with an audience. The struggle went on for over 10 minutes, his rod bending and straining. Here's what I saw while he was "having fun"

a) gathering an audience ~ most forgetting 'social distancing'


b) getting somewhere - maybe close to the end


c) the last struggle - almost landing the catch - but ...


d) here is the catch - which he quickly released after cutting the line as close to the fish as possible

panny FZ-2500; 1/800s; 5x zoom

As always, feedback welcome
Phil

Oops - that's not exactly the fish that you would want to catch for dinner. But he does look like he's having a great time landing it. Nice set of photos.

Thanks Harriet

yep - in the end I don't know how many onlookers realised what he had caught ... the cutting of the line was done so quickly and down at water level
