FROM DUNCANSBY HEAD TO THE SOLWAY FIRTH

MIKE SMYLIE    Book Number: 87122    Product format: Paperback

One of the 'Fishing Industry Through Time' series, here is a fascinating selection of archive, sepia and colour photos tracing some of the many ways in which the fishing industry has changed and developed over the last century. Since Britain joined the EEC in the mid 1970s, the fishing industry along our coasts has been under pressure from over fishing. Mike Smylie takes us on a tour from small crofting communities sitting on the fringe of the sea, hidden amongst the lochs and islands that indent Scotland's beautiful west coast, to show us what may well be the prettiest fishing boats in Britain. This was fishing at subsistence level and not on the scale of industry on the east coast where there were large harbours at Stornoway, Castle Bay on Barra, Ullapool, Mallaig, Tarbet and Campbeltown. Enjoy a nostalgic look at the fishermen's cottages, the now vanished ring-netters of the 50s, captions explaining when the first quays were built in the 18th century, bearded fishermen in a skiff at sea in a gallery of Fishing Folk and all about fishing ways and traditions. Approx. 180 photos, 96 page softback.
