Boat Stories - Fishing for Clovelly Herring

This film follows traditional herring fisherman, Stephen Perham, as he rows out into Bideford Bay before dawn to shoot his nets. He reveals his personal crusade to try and revive the local, sustainable fishery and avoid being the last Clovelly herring fisherman. Filmed & edited by Simon Vacher, sound assistant Oscar Adams, music by Rakes Adrift, directed & produced by Jo Stewart-Smith with thanks to the Waterboys for permission to use a few seconds of Fishermen’s Blues.
