In the 1930s, a peculiar annual event started off the north-east coast of England. Each year, in August, film stars, industrialists, society ladies and 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 and 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, and a fish of 500lb was considered rather small beer...
