    Default Fishing boats of Britain and Ireland.

    I'm looking for old copies of Fishing Boats of Britain and Ireland. Any year prior to 2006, and as far back as possible (1950s, 60s and 70s etc - if it was published during these decades). Condition not important so long as they are complete.

    The other reference books are the Olsen's Fishermen's Nautical Almanac which started in the 1920's I think and the last edition was the 2000 one. Very rarely see them on Ebay though ( I keep looking for myself !! )

    I have the 91/92 Fisheries of Scotland book too Darren. I'm sure I asked Peter Brady the same question & apparently there was just the one book.

    Are you meaning the Reeds book Manx ?

    I was thinking about getting one but i heard it was not very good. Also a bit steep in price.
