Encounters With Sharks, Dolphins and Big Fish

Previous   Next

In this wonderfully evocative book of short stories, Len Jones recalls adventures in angling and spearfishing off the coast of Natal, South Africa spanning some 30 years after the Second World War. This was the time when the land-based whaling industry in Durban attracted large numbers of sharks inshore and there was action aplenty.

These stories are packed with drama, humour, adventure and most importantly sharks and big fish, spurring you from page to page. They tell of the authorís early years as a novice angler and spearfisherman and recall events and personalities responsible for nurturing the great passion of his lifeÖ the sea and its fish.

Adventures range from accounts of shark fishing from Durbanís South Pier to tales of heavy surf and spearing large pelagic fish. This book is truly a rollicking captivating read and must surely be hailed as a bench mark by which all other fishing stories can be measured.

The author, Jen Jones is renouned for his ability to relate a story, and his attention to detail together with his many wonderful illustrations brings the tales to life. Whether swimming with dolphins, dodging authorities or being attacked by sharks, no matter how incredible or harrowing the tale, Len in his unique ways always manages to capture the humour in every incident. This work has a story for everyone be they sea angler, spearfisherman or just those with a love of the sea.

Len Jones is well known for his fishing and spearfishing Guide Books as well as his marine sculptures. He received his Springbok colours and even represented South Africa at the World Spearfishing Championships held in 1967. He is still an active spearfisherman and kayaking enthusiast.

"Such was our desire to complete reading this book that wife and I had regular domestics over who get to have the book next." Need I say More!
