Early bird catches the worms

THEY say the early bird captures the worm.

Our picture shows a few men out on Dollymount Strand in Dublin silhouetted by the early morning light as they dug for fishing bait.

Photographer Tommy Clancy, who took this picture, said people with shovels in hand can often be seen digging in the sand for worms for fishing or to sell on to bait shops as the tide recedes.
