With the call that fishermen would make from the cliff-tops when a shoal of pilchard was sighted as its title, this book recalls the traditional fishing industry in Cornwall in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Examining the different methods employed for each catch and the seasonal shifts of fishing grounds, the book also includes dozens of line drawings explaining the design of the boats and fishermen's nets and tackle.
