Recognised among fishing communities for his skill in distilling oral records into delightful reading, here Angus Martin expands his theme to include details of the every day life of whole communities.

Hundreds of years of the history of Argyll's fishing villages are told through the people's own memories and traditions.  This is oral history at its very best.

There are also sections on the natural history, folklore and the reputations of the fish themselves, many of which are illustrated with black and white engravings.

Not just for fishing enthusiasts - for anyone interested in Argyllshire life and traditions - this is one to buy and enjoy.

"... draws the reader into the business of herring fishing so that one's chair almost sways in time with the sea" - Mike Smylie, reviewing Angus Martin's previous book in Fishing News.
