Fisher-folk Tales

Grimsby Writers

Signed by Fred Walker (one of the contributors) to my late father.

The profit from the sale of this title will go to the The Grimsby Centre of the RNMDSF (The Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen in Grimsby).  Another author of ours - the late Vic Willoughby - was from a long line of trawlermen and profits from the sale of his book The Errand Boy who went to sea) is a true story of how life was out at sea, also go to the RNMDSF.

This book is full of tales depicting the sort of life Grimsby's trawlermen may have endured.  It is hard to imagine how these men work in the harsh conditions at sea in order for us to enjoy a fish and chip tea.

Members of the Grimsby writing club looked at the characters portrayed in the National Fishing Heritage Centre and chose a subject to write about, their aim being to make the characters 'come alive' and the result is this collection of short stories.
