Pasta with crab sauce for tea. And the debris has gone in the freezer to become a bisque at some point.
I'd like to have a heroic fishing anecdote but Jamanda just bought the crab at the fishmonger in Barnstaple this morning.


You could just make one up. Would seem appropriate for a fishing anecdote.

There were quite a few pieces of spider crabs on the beach this morning, and a rather lively velvet swimmer that seemed to want me for dinner.

I did manage to catch a fish in the sea with my bare hands though, put him back as he was only an inch or two long.

How are you getting on with the shrimp net? We bagged hundreds last month, but were really disappointed with the taste.

I think that prawns are more worth the effort than shrimps. IMHO.

I'm going to change my spider crab story and claim that Jamanda won it in a knife fight. Hah, beat that with your nets and kayaks.

I've not used it since I last mentioned, the weather's been a bit too 'orrible to get out much and I've been rod fishing. I caught a mighty 8 inch bass the other day, swiftly returned of course.

Knife wielding teachers are always a danger down here though.

My kayak is in fact the hollowed out skin of a Great White Shark that I killed with my bare hands (knives are for wimps). I wove the blood vessels of the shark into a net which I then used to catch the crabs. Using the sharks brain as bait.

Well how ever it was procured the spidercrab pasta sauce was very good - and we discovered that this year's batch of chillies are rather good and that's with them them still green!
