Had another short session at the weekend with number one Son in tow with his spinning rod. We spent about an hour fishing but with no joy, and then the wind decided to become awkward and fly casting became a bit dangerous! So we thought we would turn over a few rocks and see what life might be lurking underneath them. Amongst the Shrimp, tiny Crabs and miniscule Ragworm was this critter, a Common Prawn or Palaemon Serratus.
I took some Macro shots of it with a view to tying up an imitation to try at some point. Although this is only a small specimen for the species, as they can grow to 8-10cm, many Saltwater fish must include these in their diet as they are packed with protein.
