Re: Fisherpeople - not Fishermen?
I would doubt that there are many girls or ladies out on the working boats. Not that they couldn’t do the jobs but their menfolk wouldn’t want to risk them out on the decks.
Family owned boats might be different.
Pleasure fishing. In all the years that I was going out in our Ribs from Beadnell or Seahouses I cannot remember more than 1 or 2 females going out in the weekend boats.
Fishing from piers Etc again rare. But their cleaning and cooking of the fish brought in fantastic.
Anyway we call them fisherfolk, Remember Cullercoats cottages years ago.
