Portrait of Bob Parkinson, co-author (with Rose Rabbitt) of ‘Sand Fishing for Flukes’. Bob Parkinson’s oral history is in the archive. On his retirement in 1972, Thomas Parkinson completed 200 years of fishing history within his family. ‘Sand-fishing for Flukes’ is an account of just one aspect of his trade, sand or fluke-netting for flat fish.
