I reckon the girls will play out the line a little to let the Archiefish wear himself out as the barbed hook digs deep into the soft flesh of his maw. After that, it’s a simple matter of reeling him alongside the boat so Betty can use a gaff to deliver him unto the tender mercies of Ronnie’s spiked mallet.
And the Shield? He just likes to watch.
