Teach-A-Man-To-Fish Cast Off With Sell Out Success

Cornwall_roseland-peninsula-Teachaman1ckRoseland Online‘s own feature writers, the Teach-A-Man team, launched their very first catch and sale yesterday.

Cornwall_roseland-peninsula-Teachaman2Anyone visiting the fish and chip van, The Atlantic Fryer, in Porthcurnick layby for supper last night may have noticed a special addition on the menu. The Atlantic Fryer became Si and Cat Holman’s first customer with fresh, battered Kensa-caught pollock was on sale.

Kensa, the 18ft lugger, designed by Si and built by him and Cat last year was feature in Roseland Online‘s ongoing saga, Teach-A-Man. She was launched in Portscatho last August, making her the first fishing boat to be built in the village for nearly fifty years and has no engine so is powered solely by sails and oars; the ultimate in eco-friendly fishing!

Cornwall_roseland-peninsula-Teachaman3Cat and Si told Roseland Online, “We’re keen to sell our fish as close as possible to where it was caught and you don’t get much more local than this. Ross [from Atlantic Fryer] even walked over to pick up the pollock!”

This is the first of many sales of this kind and both parties are delighted with the result of last night’s sell-out performance.

The Atlantic Fryer’s chef, Ross McLachlan, told us, “We’re very proud to be Cat and Si’s first official customers and to have super fresh, carbon-neutral, line-caught Kensa pollock on the menu.”

Now, Cat and Si are looking forward to a summer of successful fishing and hope to see their fish on sale at the van again soon.
