Imagine the scene, gentle reader. A perfect still sunset on Whitemark pier, looking to the west - James is perched on a is perched on a large truck tyre suspended from the jetty front, and on his belly clinging with one hand to the tyre-ridges, is Dave, attempting to get a tupperware bowl under a squid that has one tentacle only onto a squid Jig. Success! and the squid does what it does best from a bowl of water... jet propels by sqirting water... full in my face. Perfect shot, I was just lucky it wasn't ink. Dripping but not letting go - or landing in the briny - we stand up and put the squid on the pier. We'd lost one I had caught in much the same way earlier, which had fuelled this effort... as had an exccellent calamari supper earlier - I turned 3 squid into grilled wing with honey and soy sauce and a little olive oil, deep fried tentacles and shallow fried rings Served with rice and salad it made a capital meal -well worth getting a face-spray.
