Fishing with a hand line

Nick Newington

Photo of me 1992 aboard Faith of Norfolk, having landed the sailfish with a hand line. You do not need a rod. Although I have one now, not convinced it lands more fish.

Fortunately as we had no refrigeration we sailed to Uraparapara (Solomon Islands)the next morning and exchanged the fish for mountains of fruit and vegetables. To the delight of us and the locals alike.
