Fish Story

Sometime in the 1980s, Caspar Salmon’s grandmother was invited to a gathering on the Welsh island of Anglesey, attended solely by individuals with fish surnames. Or so he says. Thirty years later, filmmaker Charlie Lyne attempts to type myth from actuality as he searches for the truth behind this fishy tale.

  1. Loved this story, produced a fair few chuckles. Incidentally on the Jeremy Vine show earlier they mentioned a young girl who attended, by the surname Turtle. Jaw dropped – they didn’t give her a dead turtle to eat, surely? Nope, they found a tin of Turtle soup from somewhere. Phew!

  2. well that’s a story….im not 100% but I made aquariums for a sea zoo in Anglesey…?. sure I have pictures somewhere.. but not sure of date !!.. nice film..

  3. This video made my day and it’s not even 7am. Most amusing. There was a lot of laughter throughout and I laughed along.

  4. As a non native English speaker, the biggest take away for me from this video is how many words I presumed were just English names are in fact types of fish.

  5. Heard about this on Jeremy Vine today; absolutely brilliant story and really well put together. Nice work Charlie

  6. Lucky thing they didn’t invite the present leader of the Scottish Nationalists.
    She’d have bankrupted them!
    Mind you, her predecessor would have been easier to accommodate!

    Incidentally, they probably called the venue a ‘sea zoo’ because that translates better into Welsh than ‘aquarium’.
