    Fishing

    Sagres Point is dominated by high and steep cliffs. When I visited, it was blowing quite a fierce gale which whipped up the sea onto the cliffs making quite some noise. Local fisherman fish for bream or sea bass off these cliffs and were there when I visited.

    Fishing off the Rocks

    Can you spot the fisherman?

    I don't know if this would be categorized as a Local Custom so much as a Common Employment. Many men there fish off the rocky shores, sometimes right against the cliff faces. They seem to have steady feet, but the rocks are sharp and the waves can become huge swells surprisingly fast. The water could dash you apart on the rocks in a second. All the same, so many people here do it that it can't be THAT dangerous...right?
    One thing I wonder about: What fish swim that close to the shore if the waves are so dangerous? Can you tell that I'm a huge landlubber?
