  7. You can just tell by the way he holds the rod that he is an experienced angler! Reminds me so much of my father on many a weekend!
    Great shot, Bill!

  9. I am curious as to what's in the background. A cargo vessel being loaded? A barge? A peaceful few moments for the fisherman though.

    1. A huge sewage pipeline is being put together out in the Foyle. The pipe is currently being constructed on top of the water. Seemingly it is two metres wide and it will be 4 kilometres long. It will be shipped to Blackpool when it is fully built.

  16. I think some fishermen enjoy the peace of place as much as trying to catch a meal.
