The life of a fisherman is hard and simple. 'Mondays to Fridays he takes his boat to sea, Saturdays he takes his thirst to the pub, and Sundays he takes his wife to bed.'A climbing holiday has brought David Jones to the West Coast of Scotland. Fate has introduced him to Donald. As the days grow into weeks, he finds that fishing for lobster and herring is unlike anything he has done before. As he progresses from being a Green Hand to a practised fisherman, David takes to his new life with relish. The days of his strict chapel-going home in Wales are far behind him. Fishing has become his one obsession. This is as amusing and sympathetic novel.
