The Great Draught of Fishes

Just back in from Donaghadee, me and the two boys along with Andy Adair. Three fishing rods between us and landed a colossal 60 fish - mostly good sized mackerel and lythe (pollack), with some blockan (coalfish / coley) and one wee herring forbye. We just kept a dozen of them, the rest were thrown back in. It's hardly in the same league as the account of Jesus and the "great draught of fishes" from Luke chapter 5, but it's as close as we're ever going to get to it. Seafood barbecue tomorrow!

"...he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken..." - Luke ch 5 v 9 (KJV)
