Description . SAED:SOCIAL:DRUM MARCH 1953Ð Fishy Business Ð A lot of people think that the Cape Coloured fishermen make thousands by lifting a finger. The fishermen donÕt agree: and after weÕd been out with them one night, we didnÕt either. At Kalk Bay the little fleet goes out nearly every night around midnight. They spend the whole night fishing, and come back to sell their catch next morning. Some days people just wonÕt want fish, and they have to be chucked back where they came from: other days (like Boxing Day) theyÕll buy at any price: but thatÕs just when the fish donÕt seem to be around.
