A Brief History of Fishing from Salcombe
Salcombe History Society Chairman, Ken Prowse, narrates the fascinating history of Salcombe’s fishing industry. Fishing has occurred around the South Devon coast for hundreds of years but there were dramatic changes over the past 100 years as fishermen moved from rowing boats to the Supercrabbers of today. Accompanying the narration of the booklet (written by Geoff Foale) are many interesting photographs of local fishermen and their vessels at work in the waters around Salcombe.
