Fishing Talk

PDF Fishing Talk: The Language of a Lost Industry is the outcome of a lifetime's research by Lowestoft author David Butcher. Over the years he has recorded many hours of interviews with the fishermen of the east coast of the British Isles and has compiled their stories and accounts of their working lives into several books. For this title, he explains the words and phrases they use in their accounts, some to be found in the common parlance, some only found in use on the working boats of the fishing industry. The sea-going men - and women who handled the catches, kept the homes together and frequently looked after the business aspect of the fishing life - gladly contributed their recollections. The mid and deep sea fisheries of East Anglia have passed into history but this publication preserves their vocabulary.
