A keen fisherman and marine biologist traces his personal journey and lifelong love affair with fish, presenting a highly informed and sensitive picture of our changing relationship with the sea.
'A magical life on the longshore alive with natural history but with a stern warning concerning all our futures.' David Bellamy 'Richard Shelton, not unlike some Victorian naturalists, has successfully combined a delightful autobiography with a scientific history of fishing. He describes an entire world with great charm.' Ronald Blythe, author of Akenfield ' When I first urged Richard Shelton to write his naturalist's memoir, I never expected him to produce a classic. But he has.' Redmond O'Hanlon, author of Trawler
