I have always found the QEII colonials eye catching. Here are a couple more fishing stamps I spotted in my stockbook today:

Dahomey Scott# 143 1961



Costa Rica Scott# C198 1950

Cjd - Thanks!

Here is an image of a stamp depicting a man shore fishing with a throw net, plus an inset portrait of Queen Salote (1900-1965), designed by James Berry, engraved and printed by Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co., Ltd., and issued by Tonga on July 1, 1953, Scott No. 101.
