Trolling on the Edge – the Story of a Noyo Fisherman
Join us Thursday, March 31st, 6 pm, as we discuss Trolling on the Edge – the Story of a Noyo Fisherman by local author, Jeanne Duncan. Trolling on the Edge is the highly recommended story of Jeanne’s brother, fisherman Patrick D Robbins, who plied his trade right here, off the Mendocino coast in the 1960s and 1970s. It’s a quick read so check out a copy of the book today at Fort Bragg Library then join us for the Thursday discussion.
Trolling on the Edge grants your wistful, “Take me with you,” as you stand on the jetty and watch the small fishing boats leave the harbor and disappear in the swells out at sea. What does it feel like to fish for salmon and albacore on a small, wooden boat, braving rough seas and narrow rocky harbors? Why would anyone choose this uncertain, dangerous way to make a living? A young Mendocino Coast fisherman describes the excitement and thrills of his experiences on small, wooden boats on the turbulent north pacific, and the strange appeal of this life for him.
