Listing Detail Tabs

The Thompson family arrived in New Zealand in 1852, followed three years later by Carolyn, the mother of George William who would become the father of Captain Alfred Thomson.

It was expected that Alf would inherit a love of farming, but he chose a way of life more to his liking.

His first boat was the BLACK DIAMOND, a 15ft Maori totara canoe.

The amazing career of this man is the story of successful fisherman and the pioneer of the large-scale fishing covering the length of the West Coast of New Zealand.

From information accessed from the Delaney family, including Alf Thompson's diaries, Brian Ryan presents a fascinating story of a man who was an important part of New Zealand's fishing industry.
