CADGWITH, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 05: A mackerel is caught on a line from the fishing boat Silver Queen, close to the Lizard penisula, as they take part in the final Cadgwith Cove fortnightly fishing competition of the year, in Cadgwith on September 5, 2013 in Cornwall, England. The summertime competition to catch the heaviest fish of a chosen type, (for this final the fish was bass) allows locals and visitors the chance to fish for fun and a cash prize, with the catch cooked in a pot at the end of the night on some occasions. Set on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall, the village of Cadgwith, which was established in medieval times, owes its existence to the fishing industry. However, whilst fishing remains an important part of village life today, tourism is also now a major source of income for the inhabitants. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
