To honor the generations of Boomers who've fished waters in search of prizes large and small, this puzzle is angling for the names of fish. As simple as shooting fish in a barrel you ask...goodness no, fishing is never easy and you'll find many of these are not common fish for sure. However, given there is wordplay 'and' trickery afoot with many of these fish, you'll catch them eventually once you take their name's sake into account laugh

Each clue strives to help you in your quest so pay attention as the pun will nibble and the play with words will direct your final catch. Don't fret as some fish allude your line, just be patient and work with the number of letters at the end of each clue to help you catch them all wink

sherlock

Example: This fish has a heavenly body <8> --> starfish

= 1. This fish uses a net to sleep unmolested from itself <12>
= 2. This fish is eaten by both Zooks and Yooks <10>
= 3. This fish is adorned by bikers <13>
= 4. This fish is a brewer's ideal companion for life <7> (Mrs Soot tells me "Not in your life time dear")
= 5. This fish is a baby creche keeper <11>
= 6. This fish is known to burst from submarines <7>
= 7. This fish is a Van Halen, Hendrix and Clapton groupie <10>
= 8. This fish is an army's top NCO <8,5>
= 9. This fish hangs from lions and horses <8>
10. This fish gets the early eel <8>

Jema got one of my two possible solutions .. great!

I like what you were thinking too Gerry insofar as the eel being an early riser .. I will use your idea in another version yes

Have a great day everyone wave
