The selection of photographs shown on this page have been sent in by Fishing News readers.

Readers are invited to email (dave@linkie.co.uk) photographs of any subject related to the fishing industry – action shots at sea, colourful harbour scenes, night-time shots, amusing images, etc.

Although the number of photos currently being received is insufficient to generate a Photo of the Month competition, a selection of readers’ photos will continue to be printed whenever possible. At the end of the year, the reader who sent in the photo selected as the best by Fishing News will receive £100.
