The answer to no. 1, I'd never heard of before BUT the clue should produce the answer. SHARK is not a fish, OK?

No.2 is 'pure cryptic'

Well that's the first think I have learned today, jolan - I wouldn't have considered VENDER as a valid spelling!

I wondered about ???? FISHER or ???? SURFER for 2, of course, but couldn't come up with anything.

Well done, ab. I knew someone would get iot.

Me neither, Chris, but there it is in Chambers. I've just looked it up in the CoD and, lo and behold, it's there tounder vendoe (United Statas also vender).

Your clues can be cryptic, Jolan, but subsequent postings shouldn't be.

I've just looked up BUNKO STEERER - how do you find these expressions, jolan?

Thanks for a particularly challenging afternoon!
