Water in Burgidale

In this highly electronic age, how many of us can comprehend an era when the only means of locting fishing grounds was to line up pairs of features on the land?

Based on converstions with retired fishermen, this is the story of fishing in Shetland before electronics replaced the use of meids.  Through their own words, we discover where and how fish were caught.  the rich dialogue, almost entirely in Shetland dialect, paints a vivid picture of what it was like to be a fisherman in Shetland in the second half of the 20th Century.
