THE SHARK FISHERMAN. By David Turner.

"Much has been written in recent times about shark fishing in Cornwall in the sixties and seventies, and much of it is inaccurate" asserts David Turner who, in this book, "puts the record straight with first hand knowledge". Turner's father introduced him to shark fishing at the age of four, since then he has stuck at the trade, both as an angler as well as second-hand and commercial skipper. Besides the expertise and experience which the author passes on, much of the value of this book lies in his accounts of an era for which most of the catch records have been lost. Chapters include:- The first big mako; And in the beginning; 1963 - the first trip and a memorable year all round; The first trip; At last! And about time too; It's an ill wind; The Falmouth Great White; Robin Vinnicombe and Huntress - legendary skipper, legendary boat; Falmouth for me; Ton up at last; Still no mako; A few memorable sharks; My friend Beaky; Commercial break; The last big mako.
