Irene joins Kate and Saoirse for Ammonite filming

Here is the 124ft two masted ketch Irene looking very, very good having just arrived in Lyme Regis harbour and getting ready for the filming of ‘Ammonite‘, the story of Mary Anning, the 19th century fossil hunter, starring Kate Winslet.

IreneVarious boats have been temporarily moved to other moorings as the film company want things just right. The aquarium will be closed for the next few days. The Cobb is covered in old lobster pots. Two large truck loads of old style fishing gear has arrived. It's worth looking up the Irene’s website as it's possible for anyone to spend a few days sailing and living onboard. There are even cabins for couples - not the most romantic place to be in anything over a force 6.                                                       (Photo: Judith Biscoe)

Its late March here in Lyme Regis and there's a definite buzz around the harbour area as a new season is just about to start. Winter is over, spring is here, the sun has some warmth in it and, for me, its my 47th season of taking people out on fishing trips.

If you would like to come out mackerel fishing from Lyme Regis harbour and doing a bit of Lyme Regis mackerel fishing or Lyme Regis deep sea fishing please give me a ring. Have a very good 2019.
