Scottish fishermen inadvertently reveal a talent for modelling

High fashion editors take note! The fishermen of Peterhead appear to be naturals in front of the lens.

For the second series of popular TV series Fish Town cameras return to the UK’s biggest fishing port, Peterhead, where these fellas work at sea and on land to put fish on our plates.

There are definitely some "Magnum" looks in there and some "smizing". If we didn't know better we'd think they were all in the running to become Scotland's Next Top Fisherman Model.

The guys may look relaxed in front of the camera, but theirs is one of the toughest jobs around. Throughout the year they spend long periods at sea, braving often treacherous conditions, as they search for a good haul.
