"A Handsome C**t..."

My mate Tony Ward emailed me to say that he liked the website and all that, but that I ought to have at least one picture of a Handsome C**t on here. I was confused. I'd never caught or even seen one, so I wasn't entirely sure what he was on about. 

So I typed it into Fishbase, and strangely it came up with no matches at all. So then I typed it into Google. Google found about 720,000 matches, Latin name probably Labia majora. But in the end I decided I couldn't put any of the pictures I found on here without getting a visit from the Flying Squad. The fact that a lot of the images resembled kippers just confused me even more.

Finally, tired, frustrated and at the end of my tether I emailed him back, moaning about a search in vain. But as you can see, thankfully Tony said he could help me out by sending a few pictures.

Looking at his photos I now realise I've badly missed out over all those the years on the bank. Can there be any finer sight in angling than a fresh-run Handsome C**t - bristling with sea lice along the flanks and a thick sponge of spawning tubercles around the vent? I don't know about you, but I'm lobbying for a nationwide restocking policy.
