More Information
In the 1930s, a peculiar annual event started off the north-east coast of England. Each year, in August, film stars, industrialists, society ladies & military heroes descended on Scarborough, determined to land one of the newly discovered leviathans of the sea - the tunny.

By the early Fifties, however, this remarkable period of angling history had come to an end. With post-war austerity & the end of the Empire, tunny fishing somehow faded away. This book is a celebration of a short but glorious era when high society took to the high seas, wizened locals rubbed shoulders with knights of the realm, & a fish of 500lb was considered rather small beer.
