That’s real fishing gear out on the lawn. This is the home of a real fisherman: Capt. Fernando Lomba, and his wife, Maria, as well as the headquarters of the Sandia Fishing Corporation. Not only is Captain Lomba a rare figure these days as a working fisherman who still lives in town, he is further distinguished by being a Portuguese native. He comes from Vila Praia de Âncora, on the Atlantic coast, just a few miles south of the border with Spain. He was the last skipper of the beautiful wood-hulled dragger Ancora Praia. The 48-foot Pamet is now under his command.
