Fishing Method

Handlining


Ben George is a young fisherman from Sennen Cove, the most westerly village in Cornwall.  Ben fishes from a small cove boat using handlines for mackerel, pollack, bass, and squid. He part of a fishing family that have worked from Sennen Cove for generations. 

Ben fishes with hook and line for a range of species. This fishing method is selective and will only catch fish when they are feeding. 

He sells his fish to Matthew Stevens and Sons and W Stevenson in Newlyn, and you can buy small quantities from Ben if you are lucky enough to catch him at the harbour.
