The Solway Firth to Hartland Point The Fishing Industry Through Time, Paperback / softback Book

The Solway Firth to Hartland Point The Fishing Industry Through Time Paperback / softback

Part of the The Fishing Industry Through Time series


The fishing industry has always been important to Britain.

From the deepsea trawlers to the traditional craft that sailed around the coast, the harbours of the West Coast, Irish Sea and Bristol Channel were once full of craft, large and small, which employed men and women in their thousands.

The third volume of Mike Smylie's Fishing Industry Through Time covers from the Solway Firth all the way to Hartland Point in Devon.

Fishing was not just about the boats involved but also the people and Mike Smylie gives an insight into the lives of those who worked the boats, who repaired the nets and who gutted and sold the fish.

From the mighty trawling port of Fleetwood to salmon fishing on the River Dee, from herring to prawns and cockles, he gives us a rare insight into an almost-lost industry that once employed huge numbers.
