Tiggie: The Lure and Lore of Commercial Fishing in New England

Commercial fishing, which tops the list of the world’s most dangerous occupations, has long been a magnet for writers and readers. The subject addresses a hunger of the spirit – for adventure, for conquest, for solitude and for communion with the cosmos. “Why is almost every robust healthy boy with a robust healthy soul in him,” Melville asks, “at some time or other crazy to go to sea?” Charles “Tiggie” Peluso and Sandy Macfarlane offer a convincing answer.

    I have been investigating commercial fishing for almost a year. I understand what is good and what needs to be corrected. Reading about Tiggie gave me insight into what I saw years ago but didn’t know that I didn’t know. The biggest thing is fish congregate in multiple types, not one species at a time. This is causing extreme problems for fishermen and consumers. Read this book and get educated and entertained.
