      The tale of the fisherman and his wife is a fairytale about a wife that asked the impossible from her husband. He caught a magical fish, and she asked him to let her live. He was kindhearted and pleased her demand, and she granted him three wishes. The fisherman had no desires, and he let her swim on. The Fisherman's Friends are: brothers John & Jeremy Brown, writer and moustachioed MC Jon Cleave, smallholder John ‘Lefty’ Lethbridge, builder John McDonnell, fisherman Jason Nicholas and film maker Toby Lobb. Despite their musical adventures, the band can still be found working their day-jobs and enjoying life on the North Cornish Coast.

      Wives Of The Fishermen by Huth, Angela and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at There was once a fisherman who lived with his wife in a pigsty, close by the seaside. The fisherman used to go out all day long a-fishing; and one day, as he sat on the shore with his rod, looking at the sparkling waves and watching his line, all of a sudden his float was dragged away deep into the water: and in drawing it up he pulled out a great fish.
