Default Shark Drunk

At last, Book of the Week on Rad 4 is about fishing for a change, it's been a while.
It's the quest for a Greenland Shark, a sort of drama doc, full of interesting facts about a particularly weird fish. Really worth a listen, well written and well read, three days to go before the end, catch up on iPlayer.

Shark Drunk -Episode 1

The blurb -

Morten Stroksnes and his friend Hugo are in pursuit of the elusive Greenland shark, but it's not easy to find in the seas off northern Norway.

The Lofoten archipelago, just north of the Arctic Circle, is a place of unsurpassed beauty. The skyline spikes with dramatic peaks; the radiant greens and purples of the Northern Lights follow summers where the sun never sets. It's a place of small villages, where the art of fishing, though evolving, is still practiced in traditional ways.

Beneath the great depths surrounding these islands lurks the infamous Greenland shark. Shark Drunk is the true story of two friends, the author and the artist Hugo Aasjord, as they embark on a wild pursuit of the famed creature - all from a tiny rubber boat.
