“Dave Cabeldu's new book, 'Fishing Cats' will transport you back to a post war Jersey when tourism populated the island with quaint guest houses. The family-owned seaside hotel provides the backdrop for his memories.This is a fascinating insight into the way Jersey was when cats and kids used to go fishing! I loved it.”
