Hand Lining



Handline fishermen use hooks and lines to catch premium quality fish. This is a very selective method of fishing, and there is minimal effect on seabed habitats or bycatch of unwanted species. Undersized specimens can easily be returned to the sea unharmed.

“I met Johnny as his first customer in Cornwall.  From that moment, he has not only been the most incredible fish merchant I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, but also a great friend  and an inspiration.  His knowledge for all things fish and general outlook on life, makes me smile”
