Did anyone see the Discovery Channel program last night,World's Toughest Tribes. He was in Newlyn for 3 weeks on 2 inshore boats first and then on the beamer ,Billy Rownie. It is worth catching as it will be repeated i'd say.He didn't say it but I get the feeling he felt that fishing was tougher than any of the jobs he has done throughout the series. I will watch all the trawlermen episodes on the weekend as I missed monday and have them all been taped for me.

I didn't see the programme, but I suspect that may be the Billy Rownie in the Trawlerphotos banner at the top of the page. I'll have to go back through my photos to check...
