The life of a fisherman is a hard one. 'Mondays to Fridays he takes
his boat to sea, Saturdays he takes his thirst to a pub, and
Sundays he takes his wife to bed. And by God, by the time Monday
morning's come around his wife is that sick of him that she's as
pleased as the seagulls to get him off to see again.' David Jones
did not take long to see the reason why.
A climbing holiday brought David Jones to the West Coast of
Scotland. Chance, or was it fate, introduced him to Donald. The
days, which grew into weeks, that he spent fishing for lobster and
herring were unlike any that he had ever known before, and as he
progresses from being a 'Green Hand' to a practised fisherman, he
finds the change from his strict chapel-going home in Wales to this
new world of the 'Hairy Wullies', the scalders and the dominating
figure of King Herring both stimulating and hilarious.
